Adult Fiction MUNRO
Summary: In her celebrated tenth collection -- her first since the award-winning, bestselling The Love of a Good Woman -- short story master Alice Munro achieves new heights, creating breathtaking narratives that loop and swerve like memory, and conjuring up characters as thorny and contradictory as people we know ourselves. A tough-minded housekeeper jettisons the habits of a lifetime became of a teenager's practical joke. A college student visiting her brassy, unconventional aunt stumbles on an astonishing secret and its meaning in her own life. An incorrigible philanderer responds with unexpected grace to his wife's nursing-home romance. Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage is Munro at her best -- tirelessly observant, serenely free of illusion, deeply and gloriously humane.
