Anthony DePalma, a former Toronto bureau chief for The Times, wrote a beautiful obituary for Alice Munro, the Nobel laureate who passed away in Port Hope, Ontario this week. DePalma described Munro’s stories as unmatched, blending ordinary people with extraordinary themes. He noted that she often depicted small-town individuals in rural southwestern Ontario facing extraordinary situations that made the fantastical seem commonplace. Some of her characters were so intricately developed that readers felt a deep connection with them akin to that of a full-length novel.

The New York Times has long covered Munro and her work, with the first mention dating back to 1973 when her collection of stories, “Dance of the Happy Shades,” was published. Recently, Opinion published an essay by novelist Sheila Heti about Munro, while Books reminded readers of their guide to Munro’s work. An appraisal of Munro’s work was also offered by Gregory Cowles, a senior editor at The New York Times Book Review.

In a conversation with Cowles, he shared his experiences with Munro’s work and the impact it had on him. He mentioned how her stories, while set in Canada, also had a Midwestern American feel to them. Cowles highlighted the rich exploration of memory and time in Munro’s stories, noting that readers who dismiss her work may be missing out on a unique and innovative approach to short fiction.

When asked if Munro changed the perception of short stories, Cowles acknowledged her influence but also credited other writers of her time for the revival of the short story genre. He recommended Munro’s book “Runaway” for those unfamiliar with her work, praising her prolific output.
