TORONTO (AP) A Canadian publishing house says Mavis Gallant, the Montreal-born writer who carved out an international reputation as a master short-story author while living in Paris for decades, has died at age 91.
The bilingual Anglophone published more than 100 short stories in her lauded career, many of them in the New Yorker magazine and in collections such as "The Other Paris, "Across the Bridge" and "In Transit." She also wrote two novels, "Green Water, Green Sky" and "A Fairly Good Time," as well as the play "What is to be Done?"
Although she lived abroad, Gallant received several high-profile honors at home, including a Companion of the Order of Canada and a Governor General's Literary Award for her story collection, "Home Truths: Selected Canadian Stories."
