**Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature**

This first-ever selection of Alice Munro's stories sums up her genius. Her territory is the secrets that cackle beneath the façade of everyday lives, the pain and promises, loves and fears of apparently ordinary men and women whom she renders extraordinary and unforgettable.

Review: Selected Stories, 1968-1994

Κριτική χρηστών  - Makereal - Goodreads

This must be a premier example of "interior fiction." Loved the bus stop scene with the librarian and possibly an invisible ghost. No action sequences here. Will keep this book around to revisit the senior home characters when I'm much older. Don't read in a rush for book club like me. Ανάγνωση ολόκληρης της κριτικής

I'm not a huge fan of short stories. the Walker Brothers cowboy was a set piece for my MA in Creative Writing. I enjoyed it and read several more of these beautifully written stories. But I still prefer to get more involved with a novel. Ανάγνωση ολόκληρης της κριτικής
