  • Jacket image for Dear Life

    Dear Life by Alice Munro

    Price: £8.99    Add to Basket
    The release of a new collection of Alice Munro's short stories is always a cause for celebration, and this latest volume is no exception, especially compounded with her spectacular Nobel Prize win this year. Capturing the essence of humanity, the chance encounters and moments of fate which influence the whole course of a life, and the very real strangeness of even the most ordinary life. Set mostly in her native Canada, the last four stories are loosely autobiographical, forming an unprecedented admission into Munro's own childhood.

    Price: £7.99    Add to Basket
    With her bold, unflinching narratives, utterly believable characters and clear prose, this is one of Alice Munro's most self-assured and satisfying collections of short stories. The title story is one of the most dazzling and beautiful we've read.

    Hateship, friendship, courtship, loveship, marriage by Alice Munro

    One of the most exciting contemporary short story writers, Canadian Alice Munro writes with deadly accuracy and occasional cruelty. Contains the story The Bear Came Over the Mountain about a woman with Alzheimer's, which was made into a film with Julie Christie. Highly recommended.

    New Selected Stories by Alice Munro

    Price: £18.99    Add to Basket
    A covetable edition of Munro's finest work from the past fifteen years. Beautifully observed and remarkably crafted, these stories are nothing short of perfection. The typical subjects of love, infidelity and chance encounters are transformed into crucial meditations on the essential human condition in Munro's searing, emotive prose.
