Book Description

Oct. 1 2005

The incomparable Alice Munro's bestselling and rapturously acclaimed Runaway is a book of extraordinary stories about love and its infinite betrayals and surprises. In Munro's hands, the people she writes about—women of all ages and circumstances, and their friends, lovers, parents, and children—become as vivid as our own neighbours. It is her miraculous gift to make these stories as real and unforgettable as our own.

Product Description

Review

'"Runaway" may very well be the synthesizing work of one of literature’s keenest investigators into the human soul' -- USA Today

'She is one of those few living writers who, in the way of the greats, must simply be read.' -- The Globe and Mail

'The great Alice Munro proves again why short-story writers bow down to her.' -- Vanity Fair

'Wise, compelling, and quite simply brilliant, Runaway is a gift to all of us.' -- Jane Urquhart, National Post
