From short accounts of singular events to the sprawling history of a life or love affair, Alice Munro shows it is the little things that matter most These things within things the greater truth in the smallest of details, are the hearts

    Before reading this collection, I d read one or two of Munro s stories in the New Yorker Deep Holes was good enough to tear out keep but I really didn t know what she was up to in general This collection of short stories will let the reader feel thoroughly familiar with, though never bored by, Munro s style There are certain things she almost always does once past

    This was our latest book club pick, and it was selected because many in the literary community think that Alice Munro should win the Pulitzer Prize it s reputed that the only reason she hasn t is that no author who exclusively writes short stories has ever won oh, literary politics Munro s writing style is clean, even sparse at times, but she has an ability to pack a mean emotional
