Description

Men and women recall the events, the long-buried yearnings and dreams, the sometimes puzzling choices that have made them what they are.

In this collection of short stories, the nature of human relationships, sexual adultery and honour and love is laid bare.

Editorial Review

"Ten short stories depicting the magical wonder of the human condition, across time and across continents. Alice Munro "culls the meaning from the ordinary details of life with grace and precision. Few writers cause reviewers to run out of superlatives. Alice Munro is one of them."
Calgary Herald

"What Alice Munro makes are filigreed stories which look like lace, but which turn out, when they're touched, to be like iron."
London Free Press

"Munro circles mysteries of our existence: how lives touch and are separate. She doesn't confront or explain... Like life itself, we come close to clear understanding, then recede... Munro can be read with fresh insight again and again... Her work is like a mystery that never goes stale."
Ottawa Citizen
