Munro rarely provides clean resolutions to her stories, and she often drags her devoted readers unapologetically through an emotional ringer. Too Much Happiness is no exception. Critics reacted almost viscerally to this bleak collection, calling it fearless, glorious, and deeply unsettling. They marveled at Munro's grasp of human nature and noted that her elegant, understated language renders her stories all the more devastating. Although nearing her eighth decade, this author is in no danger of becoming repetitive or complacent. Too Much Happiness is compelling, brilliant fiction that showcases a master at the very top of her game. This is an excerpt from a review published in Bookmarks magazine.
