Friend of My Youth


Formats & editions


'It is a collection that attests, once again, to Ms Munro's complete fluency in the short-story form, her emergence as one of the most eloquent and gifted writers of contemporary fiction... This is a wonderful collection of stories, beautifully written and deeply felt.' New York Times

A woman haunted by dreams of her dead mother. An adulterous couple stepping over the line where the initial excitement ends and the pain begins. A widow visiting a Scottish village in search of her husband's past and instead discovering unsettling truths about a total stranger. The ten stories in this collection not only astonish and delight but also convey the unspoken mysteries at the heart of all human experience.
