With her peerless ability to give us the essence of a life in often brief but spacious and timeless stories, Alice Munro illumines the moment a life is shaped -- the moment a dream, or sex, or perhaps a simple twist of fate turns a person out of his or her accustomed path and into another way of being. Suffused with Munro's clarity of vision and her unparalleled gift for storytelling, these stories (set in the world Munro has made her own: the countryside and towns around Lake Huron) about departures and beginnings, accidents, dangers, and homecomings both virtual and real, paint a vivid and lasting portrait of how strange, dangerous, and extraordinary the ordinary life can be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from she's simply the best and she's ours Every book of hers is like a box of small, rich chocolates, you know there is eventually going to be an end but you only take small, slow tiny bites to make them last. You read her sentences slowly "in small tiny bites" to better appreciate her mastery of our language in describing the simplest things and the most complex feelings. One of her best and apparently one of her most personal.
