She writes with a beautiful clarity, an elemental humanity and a marvellous, limpid, funny, apprehension of what goes on -- Jane Shilling * Sunday Telegraph * Some of the most honest, intuitive and exacting fiction, long or short, of our time -- Tom Gatti * The Times * Munro's bold, unflinching narratives have taken the short story places many a novelist has feared to tread... That she does this in a style both calm and deliberate, fluid yet tightly controlled, stark yet compassionate, is what makes her insights into the human condition so profound -- Mary Crockett * Scotsman * Written with veteran assurance, brimming with intensely believable characters and rich social detail, these dispatches from the most unsparing reaches of Munro's imagination confirm her acclaimed place on the highest ground of contemporary fiction -- Peter Kemp * Sunday Times * Alice Munro commands enormous respect and almost uncritical adoration from her readers -- Elaine Showalter * Literary Review *
