Summary
This stunning collection of stories demonstrates once again why Alice Munro is celebrated as a master of the short story. While some of the stories are traditional, set in what can only be termed "Alice Munro Country, " others have a new, sharper edge, depicting the range and scope of Munro's astonishing imagination. With clarity and ease, Alice Munro once again renders complex, difficult events and emotions into stories that shed light on the unpredictable ways in which men and women accommodate and often transcend what happens in their lives
Summary
Nine new short works by the National Book Critics Circle-winning author of Love of a Good Woman include the stories of a grieving mother who is aided by a surprising source, a woman's response to a humiliating seduction, and a nineteenth-century Russian emigre's winter journey to the Riviera
