"Munro''s work endures-its wholeness of vision, its complexity of feeling, its tolerance of mind."
—Lorrie Moore

The characters who populate an Alice Munro story live and breathe; in the finely drawn detail of their lives we find a reflection of ourselves. Passions hopelessly conceived, affections betrayed, marriages made and broken: the joys, loves, and awakenings of women echo throughout these twelve unforgettable stories, laying bare the unexceptional and yet inescapable pain of human contact. From the opening story exploring family relations to the poignant story that closes the collection, this is “vintage Munro.”

From the Jacket

"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." —The New York Times

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. In Canada, her prize-winning record is so extraordinary-three Governor General’s Awards, two Giller Prizes (one of which was for Runaway ), the Trillium Book Award, the Jubilee Prize, and the Libris Award, among many others-that it has been ironically suggested that as such a perennial winner, she no longer qualifies for new prizes. Abroad, acclaim continues to pour in. Both Runaway and Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize Best Book Award, Caribbean and Canada region, and were chosen as one of the Books of the Year by The New York Times . Alice Munro’s stories appear regularly in The New Yorker, as we
