• Munro’s insight is oddly uplifting… Cruelty and self-delusion beautifully described

    William Leith, Evening Standard
  • Stunning… All the stories are immaculate, but the title story is extraordinary… Read and marvel

    Kate Saunders, The Times
  • Heart-stopping… Demonstrates her mastery of her craft

    Clare Wigfall, Observer
  • 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 transcends the short form

    Sunday Telegraph
  • Munro's artistry ... recalls the close attention and cool detachment of a psychoanalyst

    Times Literary Supplement
  • 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
  • Perfect for any lucky person who has not yet discovered her, and a treat for her die-hard fans

  • Alice Munro is among the major writers of English fiction of our time

    Margaret Atwood
