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

About the Author

Alice Munro grew up in Wingham, Ontario, and attended the University of Western Ontario. She has published sixteen books — Dance of the Happy Shades; Lives of Girls and Women, Something I’ve Been Meaning to Tell You; Who Do You Think You Are?; The Moons of Jupiter; The Progress of Love; Friend of My Youth; Open Secrets; Selected Stories; The Love of a Good Woman; Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage; Runaway; The View from Castle Rock; Alice Munro’s Best, Too Much Happiness, and Dear Life. During her distinguished career she has been the recipient of many awards and prizes, including the recent Nobel Prize in Literature which cited her as “a master of the contemporary short story.”
 
Here at home she has won too many awards to list, including three Governor General’s Literary Awards, two Giller Prizes, several Trillium Prizes and a number of Libris Awards. Elsewhere she has won the Rea Award for the Short Story, the Lannan Literary Award, England’s W. H. Smith Book Award, Italy’s Pescara prize, the United States’ National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Edward MacDowell Medal in literature. Her stories have appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, Saturday Night, The Paris Review, and other publications, and her collections have been translated into thirteen languages.
 
Alice Munro divides her time between Clinton, Ontario, and Comox, British Columbia.
