I enjoy Alice Munro's short stories but did not like this collection as well as either the "Runaway" or the "Too Much Happiness" collections. The motivation of the women is too understated, making their actions seem precipitous or rash. Each woman's personality is repressed until the moment that she bursts out of her shell. I liked the "Jakarta" story the best, because of the slide between action that happened thirty years ago and action happening now.
