    Difference among have a reputation for,be renowned for/as,be famous for??

    Does the phrases "have a reputation for", "be renowned for/as", "be famous for" mean the same each other in the sentences below? And if there is any grammatical error in the sentences please give me some proofreading.

    Alice Munro has a reputation for being a very depressing writer. (ORIGINAL SENTENCE)
    Alice Munro is renowned for being a very depressing writer.(Transformed sentence1)
    Alice Munro is renowned as being a very depressing writer.(Transformed sentence2)
    Alice Munro is famous for being a very depressing writer. (Transformed sentence3)
