Short stories by a master. This collection features stories about man-woman relationships, as the title suggests. Some of the stories have unexpected and delightful endings. All of them are rich with detail and humanity. ( )

I guess after a while there isn't really anything you can say about Munro's work. I thought this is by far and away the best I've read so far, but although 22 of my friends on GR have read it, they haven't written a word between them on it.

Pretty much how I feel too. Same, same, same, but better! I'm guessing, from the random order I've read these in, that she had a period of really good preceded and succeeded by something less than that. One thing that strikes me as odd about my relationship to her books is that nothing ever stands out for me.

Rest here:

Each story is a mini novel, centering usually on a character looking back on her life and the way a particular person, usually someone more on the fringe than the character, impacted the course of her life. I love the way her characters represent their younger selves -- I love when authors are simultaneously able to convey two voices for the same character. No need for me to say it, but Alice Munro is a true master. ( )
