A collection of short stories from the Nobel-Prize Winning author. Alice Munro's territory is the farms and semi-rural towns of south-western Ontario. "In these dazzling stories she deals with the self-discovery of adolescence, the joys and pains of love and the despair and guilt of those caught in a narrow existence. And in sensitively exploring the lives of ordinary men and women, she makes us aware of the universal nature of their fears, sorrows and aspirations." goodreads.
