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.

I found it difficult to create a connection with her writing style. As she won a Nobel prize in literature, I forced myself to end the book, but it was a pointless experience. ( )

These stories are x-rays of human thoughts, emotions and motivations. The protagonist often analyses her/his motives very sharply, without hesitations, which often is painful, but honest to the bone. After reading a few of these stories you are left with the idea that no morality is possible, human behaviour is just too ambiguous and complex. Very, very well written. ( )

You may have noticed that I've been on a bit of an Alice Munro binge over the last year, generated in the first place by enthusiasm from my wife. These are selected stories from her output in 1968-1994, and they are all good, some of them brillinat, observation of life in southern Ontario (particularly for women) over the decades. "Postcard", from which I've taken an excerpt above, is a particularly good one told by a woman in a doomed relationship that everyone else, including the reader, can see isn't happening. "Carried Away" is an intricate tale of a librarian, a soldier, and a decapitation. "Dance of the Happy Shades" features the discomfort afflicting the comfortable resulting from a musical performance by children with special needs. In "Fits", a woman finds her neighbours' bodies after a murder/suicide pact, but the real story is how the details become known to her community and her husband. All take you into the moment; all recommended. ( )

A good read. Florida ( )

A book I come back to over and over again when I can't figure out how to write a particular image, reach a specific moment. It's not a book you read cover to cover, but one you take years to get through because there's only so much beauty and heartbreak I can take in a day. I wanted to go slow with her, let her reveal the world a moment at a time. ( )
