Description

"There are relatively few unrivalled writers writing now. Munro is one."—Richard Ford

With the ease and mastery that have won extraordinary acclaim for her writing, these eleven stories by Alice Munro explore the most intimate and transforming moments of experience-moments when the shape of life is set, moments of realization about the burden, the power, and the nature of love.
