"Munro is one of my all-time favourite writers. She seems to really see people, like a mind reader who knows what her characters are thinking before they do do, and tells their stories with simplicity and empathy." (Natasha Lunn Red)
"Runaway is so good I don't want to talk about it. Quotation can't do the book justice, and neither can synopsis. The way to do it justice is to read it. Read Munro! Read Munro!" (Jonathan Franzen New York Times Book Review)
"Millions of words have been spilt in attempts to tell us exactly what it means to be human. In Runaway, Munro performs that very miracle" (The Times)
"A beautiful, echoing collection, and a demonstration of perfected and unflinching form" (Ali Smith Scotsman)
"These stories are breathtaking - they leave you winded with their toughness and brilliance" (Helen Simpson Guardian)

These stories leave you feeling a lot of things but what I felt the most was astonishment. Many times, the writing challenges you and compels you to think to unleash the numerous layers of these stories.
Munro surely is a goddess. She creates magic but the most real kind of magic.
So much to learn the reality the coincidences
How life is not any tv drama and that's why we call it life ..
