From the Jacket

"[Munro] richly deserves recognition as one of the foremost contemporary practitioners of the short story ... [Her stories] possess the pain and immediacy of life and the clear, hard radiance of art." —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
