The Virginia Quarterly Review, which is turning into one of the best journals around, publishes a long interview with the best short story writer working in the English language. Seriously, why hasn’t Alice Munro received the Nobel Prize? Anyway, the interview’s topnotch. There’s also a literary history of Munro’s career, and a set of appreciations. Apparently, she’s retiring, so there’s all the more reason to cherish her while she’s still with us.
