No biggie. Just the Swedish Academy calling to let Alice Munro know about her Nobel Prize in Literature. Hit snooze and get back to them later!

Whoops!

Heh. The future of Nobel Prize notifications: Twitter DMs?

Evidently Munro slept through the announcement.

She may not have picked up the phone for the Swedish Academy, but she is aware of her prize.

CBC reporter David Common had better luck reaching her.
