Overview

A Best Book of the Year: San Francisco Chronicle, NPR, Minneapolis Star Tribune

Here is a selection of Munro's most accomplished and powerfully affecting short fiction from the last two decades, a companion volume to A Wilderness Station: Selected Stories, 1968-1994. These stories encompass the fullness of human experience, from the wild exhilaration of first love (in "Passion") to the punishing consequences of leaving home ("Runaway") or ending a marriage ("The Children Stay"). And in stories that Munro has described as "closer to the truth than usual"--"Dear Life," "Working for a Living," and "Home"--we glimpse the author's own life.
Subtly honed with her hallmark precision, grace, and compassion, these stories illuminate the quotidian yet astonishing particularities in the lives of men and women, parents and children, friends and lovers as they discover sex, fall in love, part, quarrel, suffer defeat, set off into the unknown, or find a way to be in the world.
