Der neue Band mit Kurzgeschichten der kanadischen Autorin, intensiv, beunruhigend, genial und alltäglich. Die besten und bewegendsten Storys, die sie bisher schrieb!

The matchless Munro makes art out of everyday lives in this exquisite short story collection.

**WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY JONATHAN FRANZEN**

Here are men and women of wildly different times and circumstances, their lives made vividly palpable by the nuance and empathy of Munro's writing. Runaway is about the power and betrayals of love, about lost children, lost chances. There is pain and desolation beneath the surface, like a needle in the heart, which makes these stories more powerful and compelling than anything she has written before.

'The way to do it justice is to read it. Read Munro!' Jonathan Franzen

'These stories are breathtaking - they leave you winded with their toughness and brilliance' Guardian

Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature

Winner of the Man Booker International Prize 2009

Pressestimmen

Munro is one of my all-time favourite writers. She seems to really see people, like a mind reader who knows what her characters are thinking before they do do, and tells their stories with simplicity and empathy. Natasha Lunn Red
