'She hated to hear the word 'escape’ used about fiction,” reflects a character from an Alice Munro story. “She might have argued, not just playfully, that it was real life that was the escape. But this was too important to argue about.” Munro’s writing does what proper literature should do – plunges you into reality in all its knotty complexities.

This collection spans the work of the grande dame of short fiction from the late Nineties to the present day, with a crop of stories from her last five books. Munro’s world is suburban Canada and her subject matters are the old and ordinary ones: infidelity, lost love, chance encounters that can unravel lives.

In the opening story, “The Love of a Good Woman”, three boys are gadding about a snowy riverbank when they come across an old Austin car sunk into the water. They see “something dark and furry, something like a big animal tail, pushed up through the hole in the roof, and moving idly into the water”. A dead man’s arm.
