About the Author

Alice Munro grew up in Wingham, Ontario, and attended the University of Western Ontario. She has published ten previous books- Dance of the Happy Shades ; Lives of Girls and Women ; Something I’ve Been Meaning to Tell You ; Who Do You Think You Are? ; The Moons of Jupiter ; The Progress of Love ; Friend of My Youth ; Open Secrets ; The Love of a Good Woman ; and Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage -as well as Selected Stories , an anthology of stories culled from her dazzling body of work. During her distinguished career, Munro has been the recipient of many awards and prizes, including the W.H. Smith Award in the United Kingdom and, in the United States, the National Book Critics Circle Award, the PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in Short Fiction, the Lannan Literary Award, and the Rea Award for the Short Story.

Abroad, acclaim continues to pour in.

Alice Munro’s stories appear regularly in The New Yorker, as we
