Description

**Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature**

This first-ever selection of Alice Munro’s stories sums up her genius. Her territory is the secrets that cackle beneath the facade of everyday lives, the pain and promises, loves and fears of apparently ordinary men and women whom she renders extraordinary and unforgettable.

This volume brings together the best of Munro’s stories, from 1968 through to 1994. The second selected volume of her stories, 1995-2009 is also published by Vintage Classics.

Publisher Review

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. * London Review of Books * 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. * 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 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 *
