Vatican newspaper lauds Alice Munro, winner of Nobel Prize in Literature
Catholic World News - October 11, 2013
L’Osservatore Romano has published an essay lauding the work of Alice Munro, the 2013 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature.
Paying tribute to the Canadian short-story writer’s “immense talent,” Giulia Galeotti said that “the desperate and brutal cry in ‘My Mother’s Dream’ marked one of the most significant pages of literature dealing with the story of an abortion.”
The newspaper’s tribute to Munro echoed its praise of the 2010 and 2011 laureates, Mario Vargas Llosa and Tomas Tranströmer, and stood in contrast to its criticism of the 1997 and 1998 laureates, Dario Fo and Jose Saramago.
