Teton County Library Call No: F Lively P
Cindy's Rating: 5 stars

If you enjoy reading Alice Munro's fiction you just might like Penelope Lively's short stories. While Munro's characters are often altered by chance encounters and random decisions sending them down strange and perilous new roads, Penelope Lively explores the paths not taken.
"Somehow, choice and contingency have landed you where you are, and the whole process seems so precarious that you look back at those climatic moments when things might have gone entirely differently, when life might have spun off in some other direction, and wonder at this arbitrary outcome." so explains Penelope Lively about her novel.
This book is about the author's roads not taken and the randomness of life itself.
