Description - Runaway by Alice Munro
Newly re-jacketed for a new generation, the bestselling collection by the greatest short story writer in the world and winner of the Man Booker International Prize.
**Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature**
The matchless Munro makes art out of everyday lives in this exquisite short story collection.
Here are men and women of wildly different times and circumstances, their lives made vividly palpable by the nuance and empathy of Munro's writing. Runaway is about the power and betrayals of love, about lost children, lost chances. There is pain and desolation beneath the surface, like a needle in the heart, which makes these stories more powerful and compelling than anything she has written before.
Winner of the Man Booker International Prize 2009.
