Product description

Review

"I still feel that Alice Munro is mine. I am the perfect audience for her brand of quiet, seething feminism" (Lena Dunham)

"Munro is so good that one gropes for superlatives" (Daily Telegraph)

"Superb. Its dense weave of colour and texture offers manifold witty surprises and the poetry of place that is the hallmark of Munro’s stories" (Steve Davies Independent)

"In Munro's work, nothing can be predicted. Emotions erupt. Preconceptions crumble. Surprises proliferate" (Margaret Atwood)

"Her prose is exact and unflinching, coolly anatomising vengeful grudges, dark crimes and curdled emotions" (Guardian)

"The Nobel laureate’s mastery of the miniature is clear in this early portrait of small-town life" (Nicholas Lezard Guardian)

"She is one of the handful of writers, some living, most dead, whom I have in mind when I say that fiction is my religion" (Jonathan Franzen)

"She knows us better than we know ourselves. She always has" (Washington Times)

"Reading Munro's cut-crystal prose is unadulterated pleasure" (Daily Telegraph)

"A compelling portrait of the artist as a young girl" (Maggie Doherty The Times Literary Supplement)
