**Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature** Alice Munro captures the essence of life in her brilliant new collection of stories. Moments of change, chance encounters, the twist of fate that leads a person to 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Deep and surprising and unsparing" -- Helen Simpson * Guardian *
"As rich and astonishing as anything she has ever done before" * New York Review of Books *
"In this book Munro has laid bare the foundations of her fiction as never before. Lovers of her writing must hope this is not, in fact, her finale. But if it is, it's spectacular" -- Ruth Scurr * Daily Telegraph *
"Another dazzling collection of short stories, provincial and universal in equal measure" -- Sara Wheeler * Observer *
"A slight sense of withholding gives Munro's prose its gracefulness, and allows intimacy without danger. After many years, many collections and many wonderful stories, readers may feel they know everything about Alice Munro, especially as so many of her characters lead lives similar to her own. In fact, we know very little about her. This is one of the reasons readers become dizzy with love for Munro. This other reason is that she is so damn good" -- Anne Enright * Guardian *
"Alice Munro is one of our greatest living writers, and this new collection of stories...is essential reading for anyone who cares about literature, storytelling and language, or who savours the deep enjoyment of a writer at the height of her powers...These stories remind us of the world Munro was born into...And they remind us, therefore, how lucky we are to have Munro herself and her subtle, intelligent and true work" -- Naomi Alderman * Financial Times *
"Told with magnificent understatement" -- Christina Appleyard * Daily Mail *
"Deceptively artless...Munro has no need for tricks; there is nothing strange. Just everyday life, in all its plain, abundant richness and sorrow" -- Claire Allfree * Metro *
"Alice Munro...can create a whole world in a short story - these stories are only 20 or 30 pages long, but they live in the mind like novels... These are stories about the stories we tell ourselves, and they are first rate" * Evening Standard *
