Description

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.

Professional reviews

"‘The great Alice Munro proves again why short-story writers bow down to her.’ VANITY FAIR

‘Alice Munro, winner of the 2009 Man Booker International Prize, is sometimes called the `Canadian Chekhov' for her mastery of the short-story form. This new selection... proves that the nickname, for all that it's become a cliché, is well deserved.’ TIME OUT

‘Munro's stories enact what can only be called a sort of magic’ ALI SMITH

‘Munro's writing does what proper literature should do - plunges you into reality in all its knotty complexities...Munro transcends the short form.’ SUNDAY TELEGRAPH"
