Canadian media have confirmed that Alice Munro, a prominent figure in the literary world who won the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature, has died at the age of 92.

According to reports, Ms. Munro passed away Monday night at her home in Port Hope, Ontario, after 92 years of life, a significant portion of which she dedicated to writing and creating literary works.

This globally renowned author had been ill during her last years and had been grappling with dementia for at least a decade.

The BBC World Service reported that Alice Munro has been writing short stories for over 60 years, and the Nobel committee has recognized her as a “master of contemporary short stories.”

Alice Munro won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2013, the most prestigious international award in literature, having published her last collection of stories, “Dear Life,” in 2012.

After this collection, she did not publish any more books, and she explained in an interview with the National Post: “It’s not that I didn’t like writing anymore, but I think you reach a point where your view of your own life somehow changes.”

Her last story collection, “Dear Life,” is also a familiar book in Persian-speaking countries, including Afghanistan. It is available in almost all bookstores in Kabul, with different cover designs and various translators.
