AUTHOR

Munro, Alice, Atwood, Margaret

SUMMARY

(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) "Carried Away" is a dazzling selection of stories-seventeen favorites chosen by the author from across her distinguished career. Alice Munro has been repeatedly hailed as one of our greatest living writers, a reputation that has been growing for years. The stories brought together here span a quarter century, drawn from some of her earliest books, "The Beggar Maid "and "The Moons of Jupiter," through her recent best-selling collection, "Runaway." Here are such favorites as "Royal Beatings" in which a young girl, her father, and stepmother release the tension of their circumstances in a ritual of punishment and reconciliation; "Friend of My Youth" in which a woman comes to understand that her difficult mother is not so very different from herself; and "The Love of a Good Woman," in which, when an old crime resurfaces, a woman has to choose whether to believe in the man she intends to marry. Munro's incomparable empathy for her characters, the depth of her understanding of human nature, and the grace and surprise of her narrative add up to a richly layered and capacious fiction. Like the World War I soldier in the title story, whose letters from the front to a small-town librarian he doesn't know change her life forever, Munro's unassuming characters insinuate themselves in our hearts and take permanent hold.Munro, Alice is the author of 'Carried Away A Selection of Stories', published 2006 under ISBN 9780307264862 and ISBN 0307264866.
