The updated and expanded Nobel Prize Edition of this exquisite Story collection, which includes work from the whole span of Alice Munro's venerable career.
This classic collection-now revised and expanded-is the perfect introduction to Nobel Laureate Alice Munro's brilliant, revelatory short stories, in which she unfolds the wordless secrets that lie at the center of human experience.

The stories in this volume span Munro's career: The title stories from her collections The Moons of Jupiter; The Progress of Love; and Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage; "Differently," from Friend of My Youth; "Carried Away," from Open Secrets; and (new to this edition) "In Sight of the Lake," from Dear Life. Vintage Munro also includes the text of the Nobel Prize Presentation Speech, given by Peter Englund, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy.

Pressestimmen

"Alice Munro is often able to say more in 30 pages than an ordinary novelist is capable of in 300. She is a virtuoso of the elliptical . . . the master of the contemporary short story. . . . Munro, like few others, have come close to solving the greatest mystery of them all: the human heart and its caprices." The Nobel Prize in Literature 2013 - Presentation Speech
