Product Description

24 cm. Local advertisements. First printing. April, 1950. Vol. 4, No. 2. Cream and maroon paper covers, staple bound. This is the first published material by Alice Munro: "Eighteen-year-old freshette, whose story in this issue is her first published material. Graduate of Wingham High School. Overly modest about her talents, but hopes to write the Great Canadian Novel some day. Has read little modern writing, has travelled scarcely at all, and belongs to no particular literary movement. Plans to major in Honours English, with emphasis on creative writing." What is most captivating is that this description was probably written by the author herself. The publication appeared during her first year at University of Western Ontario, the same year she met her husband, and is noted in the biography "Alice Munro: Writing Her Lives" by Robert Thacker. As such, she is listed under her maiden name, Alice Laidlaw. A complete collection of Folio is available in some special collections, but pre-1960 editions are rare to find on the open market. From a run of probably fewer than 150 copies.
