Sales surge for new Nobel winner, Alice Munro

NEW YORK — The public wants to read a lot more from Alice Munro.

The Canadian author had five books in Amazon.com’s top 30 on Friday, a day after winning the Nobel Prize for literature. The 82-year-old Munro is one of the better known literature winners in recent years and has received one of the stronger Nobel sales “bumps.”

Her current best sellers include the story collections “Dear Life,” ‘’Runaway” and “Something I’ve Been Meaning to Tell You.”

Publisher Vintage Books has announced a reprinting of previous works that will total 100,000 copies. Covers of the new editions will note her Nobel status.
