For lovers of short stories
on November 24, 2015
The title of the book caught my attention by the mistery the word “something” implied. This book is a collection of 13 short stories first published in 1974. I am not a fan of short stories as they almost always leave a “so what’s next” question unanswered. Alice Munro stories, by contrast, give a clear sense of the story’s end, some even too abrupt to my taste.
Some stories are personalized and presented as the author’s own experience, some have feminine characters, ten year old girls, teenagers, married women, seniors. More on http://lovevonbeautyvonlove.com/2015/06/17/something-ive-been-meaning-to-tell-you-by-alice-munro/
