    In the long title story, we accompany Sophia Kovalevsky - a late-19th-century Russian émigré and mathematician - on a winter journey that takes her from the Riviera, where she visits her lover, to Paris, Germany, and Denmark, where she has a fateful meeting with a local doctor, and finally to Sweden, where she teaches at the only university in Europe willing to employ a female mathematician.

    Three stories concern the same woman - in the first, she escapes from teaching at a girls' school into a wild love affair; in the second, she returns with her child to the home of her parents, whose marriage she finally begins to examine; and in the last, her vanished child turns up caught in the grip of a religious cult. In these and other stories Alice Munro's understanding of the people about whom she writes makes their lives as real as our own.

    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.

    A young boy is taken to Edinburgh Castle Rock, where his father assures him that on a clear day he can see America, and he catches a glimpse of his father's dream. In stories that follow, as the dream becomes a reality, two sisters-in-law experience very different kinds of passion on the long voyage to the New World. Other stories take place in more familiar Munro territory, the towns and countryside around Lake Huron, where the past shows through the present like the traces of a glacier on the landscape, and strong emotions stir just beneath the surface of ordinary comings and goings.

    Moments of change, chance encounters, twists of fate that create a new way of thinking or being: The stories in Dear Life build to form a radiant, indelible portrait of just how dangerous and strange ordinary life can be. The collection includes four powerful pieces, "autobiographical in Feeling", set during the time of Munro's own childhood, in the area where she grew up.

    I Alice Munros ni noveller møder vi kvinder i alle aldre og omstændigheder. Titelnovellen handler om en ung kvinde, som - til trods for at hun ønsker det - ikke formår at forlade sin mand. I en anden novelle er det en ung kvinde fra landet, som planlægger at komme så langt væk som muligt via et job i hotelbranchen, og som pludselig forstår, at hun er endt på et vildspor. Tre historier handler om den samme kvinde, Juliet, som bevæger sig gennem dramatiske stadier af sit liv.

    I ni noveller skildrer Munro mennesker i konflikt mellem tradition og fornyelse, mellem det hjemlige og ubekendte, mellem tryghed og frihed. I titelnovellen bryder den ensom Johanna ud af sin vante hverdag som husholderske for den aldrende Mr. McCauley for selv at skabe fornyelse i sit liv. Hun har i smug korresponderet med Mr. McCauleys svigersøn – faren til barnebarnet Sabitha, som bor hos dem efter moderens død. Men Johanna udsættes for en grusom spøg, og brevene fra faren er fabrikerede af Sabitha og veninden Edith.
