With her peerless ability to give us the essence of a life in often brief but spacious and timeless stories, Alice Munro illumines the moment a life is shaped -- the moment a dream, or sex, or perhaps a simple twist of fate turns a person out of his or her accustomed path and into another way of being. Suffused with Munro's clarity of vision and her unparalleled gift for storytelling, these stories (set in the world Munro has made her own: the countryside and towns around Lake Huron) about departures and beginnings, accidents, dangers, and homecomings both virtual and real, paint a vivid and lasting portrait of how strange, dangerous, and extraordinary the ordinary life can be.


Deep and surprising and unsparing -- Helen Simpson * Guardian * As rich and astonishing as anything she has ever done before * New York Review of Books * In this book Munro has laid bare the foundations of her fiction as never before. Lovers of her writing must hope this is not, in fact, her finale. But if it is, it's spectacular -- Ruth Scurr * Daily Telegraph * Another dazzling collection of short stories, provincial and universal in equal measure -- Sara Wheeler * Observer * A slight sense of withholding gives Munro's prose its gracefulness, and allows intimacy without danger. After many years, many collections and many wonderful stories, readers may feel they know everything about Alice Munro, especially as so many of her characters lead lives similar to her own. In fact, we know very little about her. This is one of the reasons readers become dizzy with love for Munro. This other reason is that she is so damn good -- Anne Enright * Guardian * Alice Munro is one of our greatest living writers, and this new collection of essential reading for anyone who cares about literature, storytelling and language, or who savours the deep enjoyment of a writer at the height of her powers...These stories remind us of the world Munro was born into...And they remind us, therefore, how lucky we are to have Munro herself and her subtle, intelligent and true work -- Naomi Alderman * Financial Times * Told with magnificent understatement -- Christina Appleyard * Daily Mail * Deceptively artless...Munro has no need for tricks; there is nothing strange. Just everyday life, in all its plain, abundant richness and sorrow -- Claire Allfree * Metro * Alice Munro...can create a whole world in a short story - these stories are only 20 or 30 pages long, but they live in the mind like novels... These are stories about the stories we tell ourselves, and they are first rate * Evening Standard *

    Ik vond de verhalen mooi maar koel en afstandelijk geschreven. Het was alsof ik de personages door een beslagen raam zag en daarom niet dichtbij kon komen.

    Munro is een fantastische verhalenschrijfster, ze zuigt je al vanaf de eerste pagina mee in het verhaal.
