Does Alice Munro Really Mean It?

From Galleycat:

Last Sunday, Judy Stoffman of the Toronto Star updates a story we first heard back in June, with more information about Alice Munro‘s announcement that she’s all done now. And Stoffman thinks she might actually mean it this time when she says “she has used up all her material and has nothing left to say,” too, although other observers who have heard similar protests of retirement aren’t so sure. Still, Munro told one reporter she’s only got four unpublished stories left in the can, and she’s even said to have told fans at a signing she wasn’t going to write anymore.

My first thought on reading this was that Brad Hooper, Booklist‘s Adult Books Editor, would be devastated–he likes Munro so much that he’s writing a book about her work. But then I reread his mixed review of The View from Castle Rock and I wondered if he might not agree that it’s best for a writer to quit near the peak of her powers.

(I imagine he might approach the book a bit differently, too, if he believes she really is done.)
