Overview
WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE(R) IN LITERATURE 2013
In the her tenth collection (the title story of which is the basis for the new film "Hateship Loveship)," Alice Munro achieves new heights, creating narratives that loop and swerve like memory, and conjuring up characters as thorny and contradictory as people we know ourselves.
A tough-minded housekeeper jettisons the habits of a lifetime because of a teenager's practical joke. A college student visiting her brassy, unconventional aunt stumbles on an astonishing secret and its meaning in her own life. An incorrigible philanderer responds with unexpected grace to his wife's nursing-home romance. Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage is Munro at her best, tirelessly observant, serenely free of illusion, deeply and gloriously humane.

Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage: Stories

The first lady of short fiction returns with another classic collection of stories. Each of these nine pieces, set in Munro's home territory of Ontario and British Columbia, probes the nature of human connection. In "The Bear Came Over the Mountain," a cheating husband puts his wife in an old-age home, where she unexpectedly finds romance. A biology teacher battles creationists in "Comfort." Narratives like "Nettles" and "Post and Beam" reveal the surprises and disappointments inherent in love relationships. With astonishing clarity and wisdom, Munro portrays the nature of passion, the pull of memory and the power of the past. A reading group guide is available in print and online at www.vintagebooks.com/read.
