Reviews

  • "At 80 Munro is still one of our most fearless explorers of the human being, as she descends, time and again, headlamp on full beam, pickaxe and butter-knife at the ready."

    The Times
  • "Munro's writing does what proper literature should do - plunges you into reality in all its knotty complexities...Munro transcends the short form."

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "Munro...is an astute and lavishly confident writer, her clean, well-shaped sentences delivering a near constant supply of stinging insight, together with moments of wonderful soft-fingered grace. Her economy with words can be dazzling."

    New Statesman
  • "Alice Munro, winner of the 2009 Man Booker International Prize, is sometimes called the `Canadian Chekhov' for her mastery of the short-story form. This new selection... proves that the nickname, for all that it's become a cliché, is well deserved."

    Time Out
  • "Munro is so good that one gropes for superlatives...(her) stories read like short novels; entire lives comprehended in a peripheral glimpse, an uncanny anticipation, a sudden intuition."

    Sunday Telegraph
