“Surely Munro’s best yet.” –The New York Times Book Review

“She is the living writer most likely to be read in a hundred years.” –Mona Simpson, The Atlantic Monthly

“A writer to cherish. . . . The sheer spaciousness of Munro’s storytelling, her gift for surprising us with the truth about ourselves, has transcended national boundaries.” –Los Angeles Times Book Review

“In Munro’s hands, as in Chekhov’s, a short story is more than big enough to hold the world–and to astonish us, again and again.” —Chicago Tribune
