    DescriptionThis is the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature. 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.

    Review quote
    "One of the most esteemed writers in the world...Few writers capture the moral ambiguities, murkiness, messiness - and joy - of relationships with as much empathy and grace as Munro" Guardian "Her work is practically perfect. Any writer has to gawk when reading her because her work is very subtle and precise" -- Jane Smiley "The best short story writer alive... Munro can pack more into one of her stories - more subtlety, more grace, more tender twists of the human heart - than many novelists do in a lifetime's oeuvre" Independent "One of the world's best living short-story writers...say that she has made the short story her own and reinvigorated it somehow falls short - she has reinvented it" Observer "Munro's stories enact what can only be called a sort of magic" -- Ali Smith
