    Review quote
    "She has a touch of genius" Mail on Sunday "Only a few writers continue to create those full-bodied miniature universes of the old school. Some of her short stories are so ample and fulfilling that they feel like novels. They present whole landscapes and cultures, who families of characters" -- Anne Tyler "The writer's questioning memory gives us sharp flashes of reality that are so vividly recalled they permit us to live another life for a moment." Publishers Weekly "Witty, subtle, passionate, The Moons of Jupiter is exceptionally knowledgeable about the content and movement - the entanglements and entailments - of individual human feeling. And the knowledge it offers can't be looked up elsewhere" New York Times "Munro is in a class of her own... No other writer working today is able to invest the humble story with more power, grace or breadth... Munro has been compared to Chekhov... She has the haunting lyricism and the indulgent wisdom to qualify." Los Angeles Times Book Review
