Synopsis

WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE® IN LITERATURE 2013

The incomparable Alice Munro’s bestselling and rapturously acclaimed Runaway is a book of extraordinary stories about love and its infinite betrayals and surprises, from the title story about a young woman who, though she thinks she wants to, is incapable of leaving her husband, to three stories about a woman named Juliet and the emotions that complicate the luster of her intimate relationships. In Munro’s hands, the people she writes about–women of all ages and circumstances, and their friends, lovers, parents, and children–become as vivid as our own neighbors. It is her miraculous gift to make these stories as real and unforgettable as our own.




From the Trade Paperback edition.

These stories sound a familiar theme for Alice Munro: that life is precarious, that flux is a given, that certainty will always be elusive.
