Acclaimed short story writer Mavis Gallant died Tuesday morning at her Paris apartment, her publishers said. She was 91.
"Without exaggeration she was one of the finest writers Canada has ever known," said her publisher Doug Pepper of McClelland & Stewart.
"Witty, brave, honest, fiercely independent, Mavis was a stunning writer who transformed the short fiction form," he said.
