These are public radio stories made in recent months and over many years by acclaimed producer Jay Allison - working together with friends, colleagues, neighbors, strangers and whoever would take the loan of one of his tape recorders. They are stories about life as we find it, and record it.

      " I like Alice Munro as a general rule, but I found this book lacked the clever writing I had anticapated, and the stories I got through were humdrum at best, and lacked value (and values). "

      " I'm a big fan of internationally renowned Canadian writer Alice Munro. This is her 14th collection of short stories. As always, her characters are mysterious, often act surprisingly. General themes include betrayal, abandonment, changes in fortune, resignation. Most of the main characters are women but often the story is about their interaction with men. The last four stories are autobiographical in nature and offer a rare glimpse into her childhood. Munro observes her characters without judgement and "shows without telling." Everything she writes seems to be understated; she is often said "to offer and to withhold". "

      " Deceptively simple, great short stories! "
