Praise

“It’s no surprise that every story in the latest collection by Canada’s Munro is rewarding and that the best are stunning. They leave the reader wondering how the writer manages to invoke the deepest, most difficult truths of human existence in the most plainspoken language. . . The author knows what matters, and the stories pay attention to it.”—Kirkus, starred review

“Unreserved praise for the continued wonderment provided by arguably the best short-story writer in English today. . . On whatever level of reader familiarity Munro is working, in every story she finds new ways to make the lives of ordinary people compelling.”—Booklist, starred review

“For the first time, Munro writes about her childhood, in the collection’s final four pieces. . . These feature the precision of her fiction with the added interest of revealing the development of Munro’s eye and her distance from her surroundings, both key, one suspects in making her the writer she is.”—PW, boxed, starred review

“With her penetrating new collection, Alice Munro demonstrates once again why she deserves her reputation as a master of short fiction. . . “This is not a story, only life,” declares the protagonist of the title narrative. With the subtlety and complexity of Munro’s writing, it’s hard to tell the difference.”—Pamela Newtown, O Magazine
