ALICE MUNRO: NOBEL LAUREATE

by GUTS

He said that the difference between the male and female modes of thought were easily illustrated by the thoughts of a boy and a girl, sitting on a park bench looking at the full moon. The boy thinks of the universe, its immensity and mystery; the girl thinks, “I must wash my hair.” When I read this I was frantically upset; I had to put the magazine down…I wanted men to love me, and I wanted to think about the universe when I looked at the moon. I felt trapped, stranded; it seemed there had to be a choice where there couldn’t be a choice

It’s a great day for Can lit! Not only is Alice Munro the first Canadian woman to win the Nobel Prize for literature, her short stories explore the domestic and inner lives of girls and women. Celebrate by reading a short story (or two!) by Alice Munro today. We promise you won’t regret it. 

Love,

GUTS
