Selected Stories by Alice Munro

Book Description

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.

Lives of Girls and Women by Alice Munro Lives of Girls and Women, Paperback (March 2015)

Catching frogs, grazing knees, singing songs to save England from Hitler - that was childhood for Del Jordan, and now she's impatient for more. More than she can find in the encyclopedias sold by her mother, or in the half-understood innuendos dispensed by best friend Naomi, or in the whispers of boys during Friday night dances.

Something I've Been Meaning to Tell You by Alice Munro Something I've Been Meaning to Tell You, Paperback (November 2014)

Featuring an early collection of stories, this book presents the works of a well known fiction writer.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » A rich selection of 28 compact and resonant stories (they're novels in miniature, more often than not) drawn from seven highly praised collections previously published by the Ontario writer. Munro has been called, with good reason, North America's Chekhov. Her rich elaborations of seemingly commonplace lives, in which she invariably locates the imaginative heart of lives her characters wished and meant to have lived, have grown in power and complexity over the years, to the point where the best stories in her 1994 volume, Open Secrets ("A Wilderness Station" and the magnificent "Carried Away" - surely one of the best stories of the last 50 years), have placed her in serious contention both for the Nobel Prize and for the designation of best living short-story writer (only William Trevor rivals her). Readers who don't know Munro's fiction should be directed toward such marvels as "Dance of the Happy Shades," "The Beggar Maid," and "The Moons of Jupiter." But none should be neglected. "Here," as Dryden said of Chaucer, "is God's plenty." The collection of the year. (Kirkus Reviews)
