Alice Munro the very gifted writer of short stories has chosen eighteen of her favorites and compiled them into this astounding collection. My favorite of course is the title selection about the World War I soldier whose letters from the front to a small-town librarian change her life forever. Munro’s skill has her characters being surprised at their own predicaments. She is insightful, compassionate and tender with all of our human frailties.
