I have loved everything I'd read of Alice Munro's. And once I read Too Much Happiness by Alice Munro I believe that I'll be "all caught up" with her published work. Which means: I will begin again. Something about her fiction connects deeply with my own experience of life and I admire her ability with the written word. No author is quite like her.

That said, this collection is my least favourite. As another reader has said, the stories become more and more vivid the closer they come to the present day. I found that I appreciated the stories more and more as I continued through the collection and my favourite was "What do You Want to Know For?"
