Publisher Description

WINNER OF THE 2013 NOBEL PRIZE IN LITERATURE

Spanning almost thirty years and settings that range from big cities to small towns and farmsteads of rural Canada, this magnificent collection brings together twenty-eight stories by a writer of unparalleled wit, generosity, and emotional power. In her Selected Stories, Alice Munro makes lives that seem small unfold until they are revealed to be as spacious as prairies and locates the moments of love and betrayal, desire and forgiveness, that change those lives forever. To read these stories--about a traveling salesman and his children on an impromptu journey; an abandoned woman choosing between seduction and solitude--is to succumb to the spell of a writer who enchants her readers utterly even as she restores them to their truest selves.

Wow wow wow

I downloaded this collection after learning about Munro's Nobel Prize, and before I knew it I was in love. One of the most pleasurable, moving reading experiences I've ever had.
