This is the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature.
These are beguiling, provocative stories about manipulative men and the women who outwit them, about destructive marriages and curdled friendships, about mothers and sons, about moments which change or haunt a life.
Alice Munro's stories surprise and delight, turning lives into art, expanding our world and shedding light on the strange workings of the human heart.

Review by CarltonC
Beautifully written, finely crafted and emotionally engaging short stories - nine of which are about modern day Canada, but the last, title story, is about the last days of a Russian mathematician, with her story told in flash back. I particularly enjoyed "Wood".
