Munro speaks

CanLit giant Alice Munro is pretty reclusive these days, but on the occasion of her new book, Runaway, New York Times Magazine writer Daphne Merkin tracked the author down on her home turf in southwestern Ontario. In the resulting long feature, Munro discusses her early writing aspirations, her two marriages, and her conflicted views toward motherhood — all with a mix of candour and reserve.
