WINNER OF THE 2013 NOBEL PRIZE IN LITERATURE Spanning almost thirty years and settings that range from big cities to small towns and farmsteads of rural Canada, this magnificent collection brings together twenty-eight stories by a writer of unparalleled wit, generosity, and emotional power. In her Selected Stories, Alice Munro makes lives that seem small unfold until they are revealed to be as spacious as prairies and locates the moments of love and betrayal, desire and forgiveness, that change those lives forever. To read these stories--about a traveling salesman and his children on an impromptu journey; an abandoned woman choosing between seduction and solitude--is to succumb to the spell of a writer who enchants her readers utterly even as she restores them to their truest selves.

Beautifully observed and remarkably crafted, written with emotion and empathy, these stories are nothing short of perfection.

In her lengthy and fascinating introduction Margaret Atwood says “Alice Munro is among the major writers of English fiction of our time. . . . Among writers themselves, her name is spoken in hushed tones.” This splendid gift edition is sure to delight Alice Munro’s growing body of admirers, what Atwood calls her “devoted international readership.” Long-time fans of her stories will enjoy meeting old favourites, where their new setting in this book may reveal new sides to what once seemed a familiar story; devoted followers may even dispute the exclusion of a specially-beloved story. Readers lucky enough to have found her recently will be delighted, as one masterpiece succeeds another. The 17 stories are carefully arranged in the order in which she wrote them, which allows us to follow the development of her range. “A Wilderness Station,” for example, breaks “short story rules” by taking us right back to the 1830s then jumping forward more than 100 years. “The Albanian Virgin” destroys the idea that her stories are set in B.C. or in Ontario’s “Alice Munro Country.” And “The Bear Came Over the Mountain,” the story behind the film Away From Her, takes us far from the world of young girls learning about sex into unflinching old age. This is a book to read slowly, savouring each story. It deserves a place in every Canadian book-lover’s library. From the Hardcover edition.

Dalam kumpulan ceritanya kali ini, Alice Munro mencapai level baru dalam kepenulisannya. Munro berhasil menciptakan narasi yang berputar dan berliku serupa kenangan; menyulap karakter-karakternya menjadi lebih tajam dan kontradiktif sebagaimana orang-orang yang benar-benar ada di sekitar kita. Seorang pembantu rumah tangga yang menanggalkan kebiasaan seumur hidupnya karena lelucon konyol seorang remaja. Seorang mahasiswi mengunjungi bibinya yang kasar dan konvensional hanya untuk mengetahui sebuah rahasia mengejutkan dan makna di balik semua itu. Seorang perayu akut menghadapi romansa dan segala keindahannya yang tak terduga di rumah pelayanan kesehatan milik istrinya. Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage adalah salah satu karya terbaik Munro. Sangat jeli, tanpa ilusi, dan amat manusiawi.

WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE© IN LITERATURE 2013 A New York Times Notable Book A Washington Post Notable Work of Fiction A Best Book of the Year: The Atlantic, NPR, San Francisco Chronicle, Vogue, AV Club In story after story in this brilliant new collection, Alice Munro pinpoints the moment a person is forever altered by a chance encounter, an action not taken, or a simple twist of fate. Her characters are flawed and fully human: a soldier returning from war and avoiding his fiancée, a wealthy woman deciding whether to confront a blackmailer, an adulterous mother and her neglected children, a guilt-ridden father, a young teacher jilted by her employer. Illumined by Munro’s unflinching insight, these lives draw us in with their quiet depth and surprise us with unexpected turns. And while most are set in her signature territory around Lake Huron, some strike even closer to home: an astonishing suite of four autobiographical tales offers an unprecedented glimpse into Munro’s own childhood. Exalted by her clarity of vision and her unparalleled gift for storytelling, Dear Life shows how strange, perilous, and extraordinary ordinary life can be.

Sheila Munro is the daughter of one of the world’s most admired fiction writers: Alice Munro, three-time winner of Canada’s prestigious Governor General’s Award. In Lives of Mothers and Daughters, she reveals what it was like to grow up with a mother of such tremendous renown. At the core of the book lies a loving and intimate biography of Alice, presented as only a daughter can. Sheila traces the story back to her ancestors, who left Scotland in the early 19th century, before telling of Alice’s birth in 1931, her youth growing up on an Ontario farm, and her two marriages, and two grandchildren--Sheila’s own children. Sheila has a tale to tell that’s her own as well, involving her writerly aspirations and her efforts to forge a unique path while following in her mother’s footsteps. And so, from her perspective as both an author and a mother, Sheila writes frankly about her mother and her mother’s writing. The legions of devoted Alice Munro fans will glimpse real-life settings, situations and characters that have worked their way into her fiction as Sheila offers a behind-the-scenes tour (replete with Munro family snapshots) of the inspirations for the tales Munro fans know and love.
