“There is a limit to the amount of misery and disarray you will put up with, for love, just as there is a limit to the amount of mess you can stand about a house. You can’t know the limit beforehand, but you will know when you’ve reached it. I believe this.” Alice Munro
So powerful are Munro's short stories that she won a Nobel Prize for her career in 2013, when the committee called her a master of the genre. This particular collection is a great place to begin appreciating her work.
