Munro is a fabulous storyteller. Her characters and language are absolutely radiant. I really loved this collection/novel and look forward to reading more of her work.
I have read a couple other books by Alice Munro - she is an excellent and talented writer. But what she chooses to write about is just too harsh and depressing and I could not even finish the stories in this book. For some reason she chooses the ugliest and cruelest human traits to write about. She goes on and on about adults being abusive toward children; about children taunting and hurting those who can't defend themselves. She has found the bases parts of the human existence and seems to relish describing it. I don't care if she did get the pulizer prize - I'm done with her.
