Editorial Reviews

Review

"The finest writer of short stories working in the English language today" The Times "The greatest living short story writer" -- A. S. Byatt Sunday Times "A remarkable writer whose major characters emerge in shining clarity... A major talent is at work here" Los Angeles Times "Munro's power of analysis, of sensations and thoughts is almost Proustian in its sureness" New Statesman "Read not more than one of her stories a day, and allow them to work their spell: they are made to last" Observer

From the Inside Flap

In these fifteen short stories--her eighth collection of short stories in a long and distinguished career--Alice Munro conjures ordinary lives with an extraordinary vision, displaying the remarkable talent for which she is now widely celebrated. Set on farms, by river marshes, in the lonely towns and new suburbs of western Ontario, these tales are luminous acts of attention to those vivid moments when revelation emerges from the layers of experience that lie behind even the most everyday events and lives.
"Virtuosity, elemental command, incisive like a diamond, remarkable: all these descriptions fit Alice Munro."--"Christian Science Monitor
"How does one know when one is in the grip of art--of a major talent?....It is art that speaks from the pages of Alice Munro's stories."--"Wall Street Journal
