Canadian author Alice Munro, a 2013 Nobel Prize winner for literature, has died at the age of 92.

Axar.az reports that Munro wrote short stories for more than 60 years, often focusing on life in rural Canada.

She died at her home in Port Hope, Ontario on Monday night, her family and her publisher have confirmed.

Munro was often compared to Russian writer Anton Chekhov for the insight and compassion found in her stories.

"Alice Munro is a national treasure - a writer of enormous depth, empathy, and humanity whose work is read, admired, and cherished by readers throughout Canada and around the world," Kristin Cochrane, the CEO of Penguin Random House Canada, said.
2009 Munro won the Man Booker Prize International Prize for lifetime achievement.
