Description
(A New York Times Editors' Choice) The author of 13 story collections and a novel—earning her two Giller Prizes, the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Man Booker International Prize, and the 2013 Nobel Prize for Literature—Alice Munro here offers a substantive, career-spanning treasury of 28 short stories. In settings that range from big cities to small towns and farmsteads of rural Canada, Munro unfolds the lives of ordinary people until they are revealed to be as spacious as prairies, while she locates the moments of love, betrayal, desire, and forgiveness that change those lives forever. A traveling salesman in the Great Depression takes his children with him on an impromptu visit to a former girlfriend; a poor girl steels herself to marry a rich fiancé she can't quite manage to love; an abandoned woman tries to choose between the opposing pleasures of seduction and solitude. In these stories Munro thoroughly enchants her readers, even as she reveals to them their truest selves. "Her stories are like few others," wrote John Updike in the New York Times Book Review. "One must go back to Tolstoy and Chekhov ... for comparable largeness."

"One of our greatest living writers.... Munro has an unerring talent for uncovering the extraordinary in the ordinary."—Newsweek

"A wonderful sampling of vintage Munro.... For those who have never read her, there is no better place to begin. And for those long familiar with her writing, there remain surprises and rediscoveries."—SFChronicle
