'Read not more than one of her stories a day, and allow them to work their spell slowly: they are made to last' Guardian When her father marries his second wife, Chrissy gets a new step sister. Three years older than her, Queenie is beautiful and kind, someone everybody wants to be friends with. Chrissy worships her. But when Queenie runs away at eighteen, their lives quietly diverge. Joyce Carol Oates has described Alice Munro's work as 'tales of domestic tragicomedy that seemed to open up, as if by magic, into wider, deeper, vaster dimensions.' Queenie is Munro at her subtle, heart-breaking best. 'One of the great short story writers not just of our time but of any time' New York Times Book Review

MEDIA REVIEWS
The greatest living short story writer -- A. S. Byatt
A true master of the form -- Salman Rushdie
Among the major writers of English fiction of our time -- Margaret Atwood
She has taken an art form, the short story ... and she has cultivated it almost to perfection -- Peter Englund, Nobel Committee for Literature
Some of the most honest, intuitive and exacting fiction, long or short, of our time * The Times *
She writes with a beautiful, mathematical clarity, an elemental humanity and a marvellous, limpid, funny apprehension of what goes on * Sunday Telegraph *
Munro changed our sense of what the short story can do as radically as Chekhov ... she penetrates in words into the hidden roots of how we choose to live, and why we act * New Yorker *
It has a remarkable effect ... it can be read during an average day's commute and yet creates an entire and intricate world, that is as ordinary as it haunting ... What stands out is Munro's shrewd, detailed observations of their world. -- Arifa Akbar * Independent *
