“Munro stands as one of the living colossi of the modern short story, and her Chekhovian realism, her keen psychological insight, her instinctive feel for the emotional arithmetic of domestic life have indelibly stamped contemporary writing.”

“In Alice Munro’s hands, the smallest moments contain the central truths of a lifetime.”

“Alice Munro has a strong claim to being the best fiction writer now working in North America.”

“Captivating . . . Munro does what most writers dream of doing and succeeds at it, page after page, story after story, collection after collection.”

“From a markedly finite number of essential components, Munro rather miraculously spins out countless permutations of desire and despair, attenuated hopes and cloudbursts of epiphany . . . Every one of these
women is different, and that is the wonder of Alice Munro.”

“Alice Munro is among the major writers of English fiction of our time . . . In Munro’s work, grace abounds, but it is strangely disguised: nothing can be predicted. Emotions erupt. Preconceptions crumble. Surprises proliferate. Astonishments leap out. Malicious acts can have positive consequences. Salvation arrives when least expected, and in peculiar forms.”
