"Alice Munro is one of the great story writers... this collection of stories empathically, wondrously proves it.”
—David Adams Richards

In the thirteen rich stories that make up Something I''ve Been Meaning to Tell You, Alice Munro demonstrates the precise observation, straightforward prose style, and masterful technique that have won her comparisons to Chekhov. Exploring the mysteries, dangers, joys, and bewilderment in the lives of ordinary girls and women, Munro tells of sisters, mothers and daughters, aunts, grandmothers, and friends who shimmer with hope and love, anger and reconciliation, as they contend with their histories and their present, and what they can see of the future.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good read This is my first Alice Munro but it certainly won't be my last.  It is like being with an old friend and having her talk about her day.  There are no pretensions of grandeur, just the clever use of ordinary words.  A delight from beginning to end.
