The literary world is over the moon at the decision to award Canadian author Alice Munro the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature, with accolades flowing in from such A-list authors as A.S. Byatt, Jeffrey Eugenides and Margaret Atwood.
And then there’s Bret Easton Ellis.
As reported by The Independent, the American Psycho author took to Twitter on Friday morning to inform the world that he’s not the least bit impressed by Munro winning the prestigious honour.
“Alice Munro is so completely overrated,” tweeted Ellis, 49. “Alice Munro was always an overrated writer and now that she’s won the Nobel she always will be. The Nobel is a joke and has been for ages.”

I guess this is what he does now.
