Munro is a very deserving author indeed, who has not only given great insight and pleasure to her readers, but has been a model and inspiration for so many authors, perhaps especially those of shorter-form fiction. Like Borges, she has shown that rich fictional worlds can be created in the span of a few pages. (Although she is unlike Borges in nearly every other way – ehh, who cares, I love them both.)
We may need to move her up in the Tournament of Champions list. Any suggestions for one of her longer stories? Let me know!

I love “Something I’ve Been Meaning to Tell You” It’s probably my favorite of her (not-so-short) short stories.
Thanks Alison! Great idea. Now I just need to figure out the right pairing. Hmmm…
