Reviews

  • Munro is a great realist, and her powers come from her sense of the way in which communities – especially small, socially anxious, limited ones – construct and guard their reality.

    James Wood, London Review of Books
  • One of the most esteemed writers in the world....Few writers capture the moral ambiguities, murkiness, messiness - and joy - of relationships with as much empathy and grace as Munro

    Guardian
  • Her work is practically perfect. Any writer has to gawk when reading her because her work is very subtle and precise

    Jane Smiley
  • The best short story writer alive... Munro can pack more into one of her stories - more subtlety, more grace, more tender twists of the human heart - than many novelists do in a lifetime's oeuvre

    Independent
  • One of the world's best living short-story writers...say that she has made the short story her own and reinvigorated it somehow falls short - she has reinvented it
