Dear Life: Stories

By Alice Munro

Our Price: $7.95 - $14.35
In story after story in this brilliant new collection, Alice Munro pinpoints the moment a person is forever altered by a chance encounter, an action not taken, or a simple twist of fate. Her characters are flawed and fully human: a soldier returning from war and avoiding his fiancée, a wealthy woman deciding whether to confront a blackmailer, an adulterous mother and her neglected children, a guilt-ridden father, a young teacher jilted by her employer. Illumined by Munro’s unflinching insight, these lives draw us in with their quiet depth and surprise us with unexpected turns. And while most are set in her signature territory around Lake Huron, some strike even closer to home: an astonishing suite of four autobiographical tales offers an unprecedented glimpse into Munro’s own childhood. Exalted by her clarity of vision and her unparalleled gift for storytelling, Dear Life shows how strange, perilous, and extraordinary ordinary life can be.

One is Flo, practical, suspicious of other people's airs, at times dismayingly vulgar. the other is Rose, Flo's stepdaughter, a clumsy, shy girl who somehow leaves the small town she grew up in to achieve her own equivocal success in the larger world.

Expanding on the deeply entrenched regional influences and traditions that influenced many of her prior stories, Alice Munro forms her most personal collection yet with an interweaving set of fictions tracing her family's history from Edinburgh's Castle Rock. Travelling back to the 18th century, readers follow a family's voyage to the New World where stories revisit the familiar Lake Huron of such works as 'Carried Away' and 'Runaway.' Throughout the process Munro meditates on the loss of loved ones, long-gone locales, and bittersweet first loves in a rich, unsentimental tone that marks 'View From Castle Rock' one of the challenging works of her career.
