"It has become practically de rigeur to refer to Munro as 'our Chekhov'... But at this point in Munro's career, how much can it add? What is certain is this: She is our Munro. And how fortunate we are to call her that." -- New York Times Book Review

Always a treat to read Alice Munro's short stories and I was not the least disappointedPublished 7 months ago by Jane C McGreg.
A wonderful reading experience! Alice Munro unravels so many of life's mysteries common to all of us.Published 10 months ago by Eunice Little
Outstanding work by a remarkable writer.
The last chapter in which she recounts her own life is especially moving.
Though one is hungry for a fuller account of her life.
