"Runaway is so good I don't want to talk about it. Quotation can't do the book justice, and neither can synopsis. The way to do it justice is to read it. Read Munro! Read Munro!" -- Jonathan Franzen * New York Times Book Review *
"Millions of words have been spilt in attempts to tell us exactly what it means to be human. In Runaway, Munro performs that very miracle" * The Times *
"A beautiful, echoing collection, and a demonstration of perfected and unflinching form" -- Ali Smith * Scotsman *
"These stories are breathtaking - they leave you winded with their toughness and brilliance" -- Helen Simpson * Guardian *
