Literary icon Alice Munro 
expected to retire tonight 
By Richard Helm EDMONTON � Canadian literary icon Alice Munro is expected to announce at a Toronto fundrais�er tonight that she has written her last book. Munro is scheduled to give a reading at a benefit and book launch for Writ�ing Life, a PEN Canada anthology of essays from 50 Canadian and interna�tional authors that is scheduled to hit stores July 1. In her contribution to the volume, Munro cites a tremor in her writing nerves in the face of constant interruptions and advancing age. (She will be 75 next month.) She says she can quit writing �in the interests of a manageable life� and with the knowl�edge that it�s rare for outstanding work to be produced in a author�s later years, �so one or two books fewer won�t really be anybody�s loss.� Many will beg to differ. Munro�s 13th and apparently last book of short fiction, The View from Castle Rock, is due for a November release and will relate stories the author has plumbed from an exhaus�tive search of her own ancestry. Her most recent book, Runaway, won Munro her second Giller Prize in 2004 and prompted novelist Jonathan Franzen, in a review for the New York Times, to dub her �the best fiction writer now working in North Ameri�ca.� Raves like that have followed Munro around ever since she won the first of her three Governor General�s Awards for her debut collection of stories, Dance of the Happy Shades, in 1968. The Atlantic Monthly has called Munro the �living author most likely to be read in a hundred years� and the Times of London once declared �when reading her work it is difficult to remember why the novel was ever invented.� Last April, Munro added another honour to her resum� when she was awarded the MacDowell Medal by the MacDowell Colony, a leading artist res�idency program in the U.S. Munro was chosen �in recognition of the emotional largeness and the dry-eyed precision of her beautiful stories,� the selection committee said in its citatation. �Reviewers have often compared Munro to Chekhov, and this is no over�statement. When you close a book of hers, you know a lot more about what it means to be human.� Munro is known for short stories that explore relationships through the vivid, unremarkable lives of ordinary people, often women living in rural Ontario or B.C. Writing Life, edited by Constance Rooke, is being published to coincide with McClelland & Stewart�s centenary celebrations, with proceeds from the sale of the book going to PEN Canada in support of writers in prison around the world and in defence of freedom of expression in Canada and abroad. � CanWest News Service showcasing the exploits of the world�sShowbits best known canine athletes, Red River Continued from page D1 Exhibition Park; admission $8 at the gate, children 6 & under free.
