Spanning her last five collections, The Love of a Good Woman; Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage; Runaway; The View from Castle Rock; and Too Much Happiness, and bringing together her finest work from the past fifteen years, this new selection of Alice Munro’s short stories infuse everyday lives with a wealth of nuance and insight, written with emotion and empathy.

Beautifully observed, remarkably crafted and nothing short of perfect, these stories are a master class in the genre, from a writer who deservedly lays claim to being one of the ‘major fiction writers of our time’.
