Revue de presse

“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

Présentation de l'éditeur


Spanning almost thirty years and settings that range from big cities to small towns and farmsteads of rural Canada, this magnificent collection brings together twenty-eight stories by a writer of unparalleled wit, generosity, and emotional power. In her Selected Stories, Alice Munro makes lives that seem small unfold until they are revealed to be as spacious as prairies and locates the moments of love and betrayal, desire and forgiveness, that change those lives forever. To read these stories--about a traveling salesman and his children on an impromptu journey; an abandoned woman choosing between seduction and solitude--is to succumb to the spell of a writer who enchants her readers utterly even as she restores them to their truest selves.

Look I don't mean she does not have good writing style and I am sure she deserved the Prizes she's won. I personally stopped reading her book because every story is a DOWNER. I enjoy reading uplifting stories, that make me smile in the end. Or that make me learn interesting things. These stories are more of a "life sucks" type of feeling. So no never again will I read Mrs Munro

I am so glad that Ms Munto received the Nobel prize. I would have missed her remarkable stories otherwise. Very enjoyable

I picked this selection as Munro was awarded Nobel prize.
I was not disappointed, the style and short story structure is highly mastered, and she creates a very sensitive little world with each sensible story.
Yet 3 stars only? well, I expected some sparkle of genius or at least something beyond great craftsmanship... and I did not find it. My failure?
Honestly, I prefer S Maugham by far...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Simply...amazing 30 juillet 2013
Par David Fowler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Having regrettably inherited the attention span of the current generation I've been taken up by short stories lately. I feel a bit less ashamed of choosing such brevity in story telling over longer novels by recalling that Faulkner rated novelists as failed short story writers and short story writers as failed poets. So, here I am...reading a lot of failed poets and loving it. One of the gems of this class of writers (at least to me, who's rather new to the genre) is Alice Munro. From the first story I read, "Miles City, Montana," I knew I was experiencing something special and rare - something only confirmed as I moved on to "Royal Beatings." There will always be those we insist that "The Greats" are a settled class - that Chekhov, Joyce, Faulkner etc. are in a class not to be opened to new members. Well, for what it's worth, I think Munro's highs are no less grand than those of "The Greats" - she simply lacks the luxury of nostalgia. So, by all means pick up a copy of her "Selected Stories" - you'll soon find yourself in awe.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 well worthy of the Nobel Prize 11 septembre 2014
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Munro is a wonderful writer, well worthy of the Nobel Prize in literature. I chose this collection to sample stories from throughout her career. To my surprise, there was not a lot of variation in quality from the earliest to the latest stories. Although most stories had similar settings and similar characters, I never thought "oh, she's done this before" in reading a later story. It's probably better to dip into the collection and read a few at a time rather than try to finish it off in a couple of sittings, but the portrayal of realistic characters, rural Western Canada, and families is consistently skillful and engaging. The stories were firmly grounded in their Canadian setting, but explored universal themes and relationships.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful writing, less than beautiful people 15 janvier 2014
Par bookaddict - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Alice Munro just won the Nobel Prize for Literature, so it is hard to give her less than 5 stars--but I just didn't find reading these stories that pleasant. The book was easy for me to put down for a while. The characters in this compilation suffer from a lack of loving connections with other people; many of their closest relationships are problematic; and they seem to lack agency in improving their situations in ways that take into account the likely consequences of their actions. This might be realistic for Alice Munro, but it is not my world.

On the other hand, her writing is beautiful. She has ways of stating things that are remarkable. In fact, I started marking (underlining) some of her unique and apt descriptions; but I had to stop because there were too many notable phrases. I'm sure that she is a wonderful model for anyone who desires to write short stories. This edition of Selected Stories has an introduction by Munro that explains her goals and process in writing; that section in itself is very valuable.

So, overall, I'd give it 3.5 stars and round up to 4, because she is Alice Munro after all.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 “Selected Stories 1968-94” by Alice Munro 28 avril 2015

Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Growing up stories about poor girls smart enough to get a scholarship to the local university (which in Canada was not too local) and escape backwardness and poverty of mid-century rural Canada, to become part of the intelligentsia.. The character portrayals are marvelous and the local color is, well, very local, character-building, perhaps, but to be escaped if possible. I grew up in the same English-Scotch-Irish settler environment in the rural south of mid-twentieth century, and I knew the people. She has a marvelous talent to engage the reader, immediately and thoroughly. Truly, one of the masters of the American art form of the short story.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great stories, sloppy digital editing 28 décembre 2012
Par D. Hunt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I am an absolute fan of Alice Munro, who never disappoints. The editing on this digital edition, however, is remarkably sloppy. It appears that the text has been scanned in and not proofread. There are stray punctuation marks, lost spaces between words, etc. I suppose that, on average, an error like this happens every 10 pages or so. A few make a hash of Munro's meaning; most are relatively harmless.
