Canadian writer Mavis Gallant has died at the age of 91 in Paris, where she had spent most of her life.
More than a hundred of her short stories were published in The New Yorker magazine and by publishers in both Canada and France. In 1981 she was awarded Canada’s most prestigious literary prize, the Governor General’s Award, and her work influenced a generation of Canadian writers such as Alice Munro and Margaret Atwood.
