    A brilliant new collection of stories from one of the most acclaimed and beloved writers of our time. Alice Munro’s peerless ability to give us the essence of a life in often brief but always spacious and timeless stories is once again everywhere apparent in this brilliant new collection. In story after story, she illumines the moment a life is forever altered by a chance encounter or an action not taken, or by a simple twist of fate that turns a person out of his or her accustomed path and into a new way of being or thinking.

    Story

    I have read or listened to most of Ms. Munro's work, and this is definitely not her best. The stories have little to go on, and in contrast to her previous work (Someting I've been meaning to tell you; Runaway) the characters are dull and uninteresting. The female narrator, Kimberly Fair, reads far too slowly and in an almost kindergarten-teacher kind of way, very annoying. The best are the first few stories, previously published in the New Yorker magazine, but even these are affected negatively by the narration.
