Via Lawyers, Guns, and Money, we learn of the international campaign unleashed by the audacious choice of the Nobel prize committee to give the literature prize to dissident Canadian writer Alice Munro:

State media in Canada reacted positively to the news, calling it a great victory for the Canadian nation and the state ideology. Still, Munro is expected to come under intense pressure from Canadian exile communities, who are already calling on the author to use this moment to focus greater attention on the lack of political freedoms in Canada.

Margaret Atwood could not be reached for comment.
