Melanie Great review. Do you think you'll be reading more of her? I still haven't read her but I am terrified of feeling that ultimate "well" that you've managed to put into words so beautifully...

Aubrey Thank you, Melanie. I own her Selected Stories, and am hoping that a commitment to the sheer length will bear a less vague fruit of understanding. I would encourage you to go ahead and read her; I may not be able to define what I think of her as well as I'd like, but I do like it.

Teresa Though I haven't read this collection, I'll chime in with one reason I love Munro (and I'm paraphrasing from one of my reviews): Though, plot-wise, my life is nothing like her stories, I am left wondering after each story how Munro knows my inner life so well.

Aubrey Thank you for your input, Teresa. I'll have to consider that next time I read her.

Garima I recently read her Lives of Girls and Women and loved it. Wonderful review which I missed when you posted it.
