This is the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature. The matchless Munro makes art out of everyday lives in this exquisite collection. Here are men and women of wildly different times and circumstances, their lives made vividly palpable by the nuance and empathy of Munro's writing. Runaway is about the power and betrayals of love, about lost children, lost chances. There is pain and desolation beneath the surface, like a needle in the heart, which makes these stories more powerful and compelling than anything she has written before. It is the winner of the Man Booker International Prize 2009.

“a little let down”

Beautifully written, very easy to read.

However, I just wanted more from the short stories.

Alice Munro writes with such clarity - these are beautifully crafted stories. Following Juliet through three episodes of her life was incredibly poignant, especially as a mother. A must read.
