"Munro's work endures-its wholeness of vision, its complexity of feeling, its tolerance of mind."
—Lorrie Moore

The characters who populate an Alice Munro story live and breathe; in the finely drawn detail of their lives we find a reflection of ourselves. Passions hopelessly conceived, affections betrayed, marriages made and broken: the joys, loves, and awakenings of women echo throughout these twelve unforgettable stories, laying bare the unexceptional and yet inescapable pain of human contact. From the opening story exploring family relations to the poignant story that closes the collection, this is “vintage Munro.”

It's hard to objectively comment on Alice Munro's works. I love them all so much. Her ability to take a reader through such a wide range of emotion is incredible. Like all of her books, I enjoyed this one immensely as well. For any Munro fan, you will find at least one story in this collection that leaves a lasting impression.

Each of the stories here are of a very high quality, but most are bit lacking compared to what Munro wrote before, but those are of the highest quality. The stories are not linked like in other earlier collections. No story stood out as especially outstanding, though I liked "Accident" and "Bardon Bus", and to a lesser extent the last story better than the rest.
