Synopsis:

In the nine breathtaking stories that make up her celebrated tenth collection, Alice Munro achieves new heights, creating narratives that loop and swerve like memory, and conjuring up characters as thorny and contradictory as people we know ourselves.
A tough-minded housekeeper jettisons the habits of a lifetime because of a teenager’s practical joke. A college student visiting her brassy, unconventional aunt stumbles on an astonishing secret and its meaning in her own life. An incorrigible philanderer responds with unexpected grace to his wife’s nursing-home romance. Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage is Munro at her best, tirelessly observant, serenely free of illusion, deeply and gloriously humane.


Review:

"Told by anyone else, these stories might seem ordinary--even sentimental. But Munro has no patience with smugness or sweetness and needs no fancy plots or exotic characters to surprise her readers. For all their superficial superficiality, her stories reach down to the deepest level of experience, where no cliches can survive. And she's just getting better....Meticulous in her observation, scrupulous in her sympathy, Munro defies expectations even as she sets them up. In her new book, she shows that she has become one of the world's foremost experts in the soul."

Polly Shulman, Newsday (Long Island, N.Y.), 11/11/2001

Review:

"In volume after volume of short stories, Alice Munro has created a world that is uniquely her own and yet is familiar and close, reflecting and touching on the realities of the lives of many readers."

John McGahern, Times Literary Supplement, 11/09/2001
