Munro had in an interview with the Swedish Academy disclosed that growing up in rural Ontario grew her confidence during early days of evolving the writing skills.

 “I don’t think I would have been nearly so brave as a writer if I had lived in a town and if I had gone to school with other people who were interested in the same things I was, and what we might call a higher cultural level,”  82-year-old Munro who won the 110th Nobel laureate last October stated.
