Selected Stories




The first-ever selection of one of the world's greatest living short-story writers, winner of the Man Booker International Prize 2009.

This first-ever selection of Alice Munro's stories sums up her genius. Her territory is the secrets that cackle beneath the façade of everyday lives, the pain and promises, loves and fears of apparently ordinary men and women whom she renders extraordinary and unforgettable.

Praise for Selected Stories

Munro is a great realist, and her powers come from her sense of the way in which communities - especially small, socially anxious, limited ones - construct and guard their reality.

James Wood, London Review of Books
