Reviews

Praise from fellow writers: Her work felt revolutionary when I came to it, and it still does. Jhumpa Lahiri 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. Jonthan Franzen The authority she brings to the page is just lovely. Elizabeth Strout She s the most savage writer I ve ever read, also the most tender, the most honest, the most perceptive. Jeffery Eugenides Alice Munro can move characters through time in a way that no other writer can. Julian Barnes She is a short-story writer who reimagined what a story can do. Loorie Moore There s probably no one alive who s better at the craft of the short story. Jim Shepard A true master of the form. Salman Rushdie A wonderful writer. Joyce Carol Oates"
