Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature

In this perfect collection, each of Alice Munro's glorious stories is as satisfying and richly crafted as a novel.

In these stories lives come into focus through single events or sudden memories which bring the past bubbling to the surface.

'No one could possibly dispute Munro's greatness' Daily Mail

The past, as Alice Munro's characters discover, is made up not only of what is remembered, but also what isn't. The past is there, just out of the picture, but if memories haven't been savoured, recalled in the mind, and boxed away, it's as if they have never been - until a moment when the pieces of the jigsaw re-form suddenly, sometimes pleasurably but more often painfully.
Women look back at their young selves, at first marriages made when they were naive and trusting, at husbands and their difficult, demanding little ways in a collection filled with both underlying heartbreak and hope.

Another breathtaking demonstration of her mastery of the short story... No one could possibly dispute Munro's greatness; the genius of her seamless, unmatchable prose which nets up the flow of everyday life so miraculously Daily Mail
