    Review quote
    "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 "A quiet revelation... Dear Life is full of remarkable moments in ordinary lives and is imbued with an aching sadness" -- Laurie Sansom Herald "In this superb collection of short stories, the acclaimed Canadian writer shows repeatedly how apparently ordinary lives can be infused with dramatic intensity" Mail on Sunday "A collection of truly beautiful short stories, perfectly crafted in a way that leaves no wanting feeling. Profound, poignant and undeniably powerful, this truly is the short story at its finest" The Bookbag "A writer who has refined her remarkable talents over a long lifetime, a writer whose mastery of the craft has reached a level that her nickname, "Canada's Chekhov" feels emptied of all hyperbole. Beautifully written and ambitious in terms of form" -- Billy O'Callaghan Irish Examiner
