it was amazing

Alice Munro is my favorite favorite favorite, and this book contains some of her very best stories. "Differently" starts out like this:
“Georgia once took a creative writing class, and what the instructor told her was: Too many things. Too many things going on at the same time; also too many people. Think, he told her. What is the important thing? What do you want us to pay attention to? Think. Eventually she wrote a story that was about her grandfather killing chickens, and the instructor seemed to be pleased with it. Georgia herself thought that it was a fake. She made a long list of all the things that had been left out and handed it in as an appendix to the story.”
This is kind of all you need to know about Alice Munro. If you don't love her, I'm sorry.
