Alice Munro


The incomparable Alice Munro's bestselling and rapturously acclaimed Runaway is a book of extraordinary stories about love and its infinite betrayals and surprises. 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 neighbours. It is her miraculous gift to make these stories as real and unforgettable as our own. (From the publisher)

Julieta, a film directed by Pedro Almod√≥var, is adapted from three stories in Runaway. The film will have its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.


What she wants to do if she can get the time to do it, is not so much to live in the past as to open it up and get one good look at it.
