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. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Short stories are not everyone's idea of a great read - some of us just don't enjoy the format. But if you're willing to give them a try, this is an excellent overview of a magnificent writer's work. It's amazing how much Munro conveys with her deceptively simple style.
