Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Spanning almost thirty years and settings that range from big cities to small towns and farmsteads of rural Canada, this magnificent collection brings together twenty-eight stories by a writer of unparalleled wit, generosity, and emotional power. In her Selected Stories, Alice Munro makes lives that seem small unfold until they are revealed to be as spacious as prairies and locates the moments of love and betrayal, desire and forgiveness, that change those lives forever. To read these stories--about a traveling salesman and his children on an impromptu journey; an abandoned woman choosing between seduction and solitude--is to succumb to the spell of a writer who enchants her readers utterly even as she restores them to their truest selves.

Review:
"Munro has been called, with good reason, North America's Chekhov. Her rich elaborations of seemingly commonplace lives, in which she invariably locates the imaginative heart of lives her characters wished and meant to have lived, have grown in power and complexity over the years, to the point where the best stories in her 1994 volume 'Open Secrets'...have placed her in serious contention for both the Nobel Prize and for the designation of best living short-story writer."

Kirkus, 09/01/1996

Review:
"This is what all art seeks: a coming to terms. What Munro achieves, and what she offers to her readers, is a vantage from which such a consummation feels possible."

Kate Phillips, Los Angeles Times Book Review, 10/13/1996
