  • A collection that sees her delving even deeper and with glittering expertise into a fictional terrain she has made her own for 40 years now

    Peter Kemp, Sunday Times
  • The pre-eminent master of the short story... all delivered by her spare, wonderful prose

    David Mattin, Independent on Sunday
  • If there is one writer who proves that the short story should never be deemed the uninspiring younger sibling of the novel, it is Munro

    Melissa McClements, Financial Times
  • This is a deeply moving and contemplative book. If it is a valediction, then it is a magnificent one

    Mary Morrissy, Irish Times
  • Mesmerising and cleverly interlinked, these stories are well balanced - neither overly inventive nor stolidly factual. Ms Munro's light touch and her sensitive embellishment of the truth result in a book that is illuminated by the patterns of life repeating themselves over the years
