Reviews

"Munro is in a class of her own....No other writer working today is able to invest the humble story with more power, grace or breadth....Munro has been compared to Chekhov...She has the haunting lyricism and the indulgent wisdom to qualify."--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"How does one know when one is in the grip of art, a major talent? One feels it in the assurance, the sensibility behind every line of a work; one knows its presence as much from what is withheld as from what is given or explained. It is art that speaks from the pages of Alice Munro's stories." -- Wall Street Journal

"The authority she brings to the page is just lovely." --Elizabeth Strout

"She's the most savage writer I've ever read, also the most tender, the most honest, the most perceptive." --Jeffery Eugenides

"Alice Munro can move characters through time in a way that no other writer can."--Julian Barnes

"She is a short-story writer who...reimagined what a story can do." --Loorie Moore

"There's probably no one alive who's better at the craft of the short story." --Jim Shepard

"A wonderful writer." --Joyce Carol Oates
