I love this book.

Munro is a genius. The stories are beautifully written and constantly shift in unexpected directions. She does fascinating things with time and the narrators' voices but you barely notice any of the technical work because the stories are so engrossing. The stories span 30 years of Munro's career but there are some common links between them. Certain themes pop up again and again. They all take place in the Canadian countryside and all of the characters have secrets, some of which unravel throughout a story and others which we never fully understand. I especially enjoyed Friend of My Youth, The Albanian Virgin and Wilderness Station.

This collection is quiet and haunting and lovely!
