Reviews

Munro is a great realist, and her powers come from her sense of the way in which communities - especially small, socially anxious, limited ones - construct and guard their reality. * London Review of Books *

One of the most esteemed writers in the world....Few writers capture the moral ambiguities, murkiness, messiness - and joy - of relationships with as much empathy and grace as Munro * Guardian *
Her work is practically perfect. Any writer has to gawk when reading her because her work is very subtle and precise
The best short story writer alive... Munro can pack more into one of her stories - more subtlety, more grace, more tender twists of the human heart - than many novelists do in a lifetime's oeuvre * Independent *
