Banyen's Description: 

In her introduction to Alice Munro’s My Best Stories, Margaret Atwood says, “Alice Munro is among the major writers of English fiction of our time... Among writers themselves, her name is spoken in hushed tones.”

My Best Stories is a dazzling selection of stories—seventeen favourites chosen by the author from across her distinguished career. The stories are arranged in the order written, allowing even the most devoted Munro admirer to discover how her work developed, taking surprising turns. The stories span a quarter of a century and include "Royal Beatings," "Friend of My Youth," and "The Love of a Good Woman."

This is a book to read—and re-read—very slowly, savouring each story. This collection of small masterpieces deserves a place in every Canadian booklover's home.
