Alice Munro : 'Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage', 'Runaway', 'Dear Life' Hardback

Part of the Bloomsbury Studies in Contemporary North American Fiction series

Description

The awarding of the Nobel Prize in Literature to the Canadian writer Alice Munro in 2013 confirmed her position as a master of the short story form.

This book explores Munro's work from a full range of critical perspectives, focussing on three of her most popular and important published collections: Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage (2001), Runaway (2004), and her final collection Dear Life (2012).

With chapters written by the world's leading critics of Munro's work, the short story form and contemporary Canadian writing, this book explores such themes as love and marriage, sex, fate, gender and humor in her writings as well as her approaches to narrative form and autobiography.

In these three late collections Munro sharply articulates, again and again, the mysteries of being itself.
