Revue de presse

"Munro is in a class of her own....No other writer working today is able to invest the humble story with more power, grace or breadth....Munro has been compared to Chekhov...She has the haunting lyricism and the indulgent wisdom to qualify."--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"How does one know when one is in the grip of art, a major talent? One feels it in the assurance, the sensibility behind every line of a work; one knows its presence as much from what is withheld as from what is given or explained. It is art that speaks from the pages of Alice Munro's stories." -- Wall Street Journal

Praise from fellow writers:

“Her work felt revolutionary when I came to it, and it still does.” —Jhumpa Lahiri

“She is one of the handful of writers, some living, most dead, whom I have in mind when I say that fiction is my religion.” —Jonthan Franzen

“The authority she brings to the page is just lovely.” —Elizabeth Strout

“She’s the most savage writer I’ve ever read, also the most tender, the most honest, the most perceptive.” —Jeffery Eugenides

“Alice Munro can move characters through time in a way that no other writer can.”—Julian Barnes

“She is a short-story writer who…reimagined what a story can do.” —Loorie Moore

“There’s probably no one alive who’s better at the craft of the short story.” —Jim Shepard

“A true master of the form.” —Salman Rushdie

“A wonderful writer.” —Joyce Carol Oates 

Présentation de l'éditeur


In these piercingly lovely and endlessly surprising stories by one of the most acclaimed current practitioners of the art of fiction, many things happen: there are betrayals and reconciliations, love affairs consummated and mourned. But the true events in The Moons Of Jupiter are the ways in which the characters are transformed over time, coming to view their past selves with an anger, regret, and infinite compassion that communicate themselves to us with electrifying force.

I nominate Munro for the Nobel Prize 19 octobre 2006
Par Reviewer - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I won't tell you what to look for or how to feel when you read Alice Munro. If you've never encountered her before, The Moons of Jupiter is the best place to start, early Munro at the height of her evocative powers. Don't turn to the Selected Stories first. Each of Munro's books is a suite of stories, interlocking in themes and often in characters, on the model of a sonata, a suite of musical movements. The experience of reading the whole suite is more powerful than the sum of the separate stories. Perhaps the story-suite is the successor to the floundering form of the modern novel.

By the way, Munro is admittedly a woman writng about women for women to read, but I'm an outdoors guy, a baseball fan, a weight-lifter, and at least until my son was born something of a rascal, despite all of which I rank Alice Munro very high among my favorite fiction writers.

provides great perspectives to the perplexities of everyday 13 mars 1999
Par Christina ( - Publié sur
In The Moons of Jupiter, Munro clearly reveals the universal perplexities of our everyday lives. The characters have a rich realness to them and must be commended for their candid honesty. The strength of this book lies in Munro's ability to create a genuine perspective in which the reader has no choice than to become emotionally connected to the characters. I enjoyed these stories because there are many "grey areas" in which the reader must rely on his own experiences to draw conclusions. There are no definative endings to these stories. They are written in such a way that there is often a fine line between hope and despondence; only the reader's morals and values can recognize one from the other.

No Suspense; Just Interesting Character Pieces 30 août 2013
Par David A. Smith - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As usual, Ms. Munro tells these stories of small town characters of past decades with customary people and their emotions in mind. I enjoy reading about what people think and do without the crimes and warring so prevalent in much literature. These stories calm and entertain me.

A great early Munro 8 novembre 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
These relatively early Alice Munro stories are the best I've read and I am a real fan owning four of her last short story collections in hardback. Although in her last collection she mentions that several stories there are the most "personal," I find the the early stories in the book like "Chaddley's and the Flemings" and "Dulse" to the most emotionally involving of any of the many I've read. Highly recommend to any lovers of the well honed short story

Three dimensional women, men not so much 29 avril 2013
Par Philastein - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
What an amazing writer! She captures the complexities, insecurities and emotional ambiguities of women's internal lives. Men seem to be more mysterious, inscrutable and mono-dimensional in these tales. The stories are artfully written. They are a pleasure to read. A great choice for book club discussions.
