Alice Munro's Best

Selected Stories, by Alice Munro.

Quickie Recap: Alice Munro offers up some great great pieces to love and re-explore.

Quickie Review: Munro is a goddess of Canadian literature. Many of these stories were familiar to me, like old friends with whom you instantly take up the relationship where it left off. Others were less known to me and gave me new opportunity to appreciate her genius. The Bear Came Over the Mountain struck me in particular - it has recently been transformed into a wonderful movie by Sarah Polley but still stands on its own as a brave short story.

Quickie Recommendation: A resounding Canadian yes.
