Lives of Girls and Women by Alice Munro

Alice Munro is my favourite writer. Her stories are brilliant. Alice grew up in the Wingham area, then studied and lived in London, and later lived in nearby Clinton for many years. I was delighted to learn recently that Alice worked as a part-time library assistant at London Public Library and at Western's Lawson Library while she was a student at Western. As a Londoner I am so glad to know I live in Alice Munro country.
