THE WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE IN LITERATURE

The characters who populate an Alice Munro story live and breathe. Passions hopelessly conceived, affections betrayed, marriages made and broken: the joys, fears, loves and awakenings of women echo throughout these twelve unforgettable stories, laying bare the unexceptional and yet inescapable pain of human contact.

MEDIA REVIEWS

She has a touch of genius - Mail on Sunday

Only a few writers continue to create those full-bodied miniature universes of the old school. Some of her short stories are so ample and fulfilling that they feel like novels. They present whole landscapes and cultures, who families of characters - Anne Tyler

The writer's questioning memory gives us sharp flashes of reality that are so vividly recalled they permit us to live another life for a moment. - Publishers Weekly

Witty, subtle, passionate, The Moons of Jupiter is exceptionally knowledgeable about the content and movement - the entanglements and entailments - of individual human feeling. And the knowledge it offers can't be looked up elsewhere - New York Times

Munro is in a class of her own.... No other writer working today is able to invest the humble story with more power, grace or breadth.... Munro has been compared to Chekhov... She has the haunting lyricism and the indulgent wisdom to qualify. - Los Angeles Times Book Review
