Ms. Munro is acclaimed for her storytelling, which the Swedish Academy says is "characterized by clarity and psychological realism." In its citation for the award, the Swedish Academy called her "the master of the contemporary short story."

Munro has published many short-fiction collections over the years. Her works include "Who Do You Think You Are?" (1978), "The Moons of Jupiter" (1982), "Runaway" (2004) and "The View From Castle Rock" (2006). Her most recent book is "Dear Life" (2012).

Toni Morrison, in 1993, was the last American winner.
