Editorial Reviews

"Her stories are like few others. One most go back to Tolstoy and Chekhov ... for comparable largeness." --John Updike, The New York Times Book Review"Munro is a great short story writer ... These stories are loosely woven and brilliantly wrought ... she is unique, there is no one quite like her." --A.S. Byatt, The Globe and Mail"A wonderful sampling of vintage Munro ... For those who have never read her, there is no better place to begin. And for those long familiar with her writing, there remain surprises and rediscoveries." --San Francisco Chronicle"[A] literary sensation ... told with such perfect pitch that the results are stunning." --USA Today
