Too Much Happiness

by Alice Munro

Penguin Group Canada | September 11, 2012 | Trade Paperback |

Not yet rated | write a review

Brilliantly paced, lit with sparks of danger and underlying menace, these are dazzling, provocative stories about Svengali men and the radical women who outmanoeuvre them, about destructive marriages and curdled friendships, about mothers and sons, about moments that change or haunt a life. Alice Munro takes on complex, even harrowing emotions and events, and renders them into stories that surprise, amaze, and shed light on the unpredictable ways we accommodate what happens in our lives.

Munro''s unsettling stories turn lives into art, and expand our world and our understanding of the strange workings of the human heart.
