This generous selection of stories drawn from Alice Munro's seven collections - the work of almost thirty years - is a literary event of the highest order, one that confirms Munro's place in the very front ranks of today's writers of fiction.
From the first story, about two children making sales calls with their father during the Depression and turning off the road they're traveling on to visit one of his old girlfriends, we know we've entered the magic of "Alice Munro country" - a world of passionate and often hidden loves, betrayals, family secrets, and unspoken sympathies, a world that encompasses big cities as well as the area of farms, small towns, and resorts around Lake Huron.

Alice Munro is one of the best short story writers of all time.

Short stories are not everyone's idea of a great read - some of us just don't enjoy the format. But if you're willing to give them a try, this is an excellent overview of a magnificent writer's work. It's amazing how much Munro conveys with her deceptively simple style.
