Description
In this cycle of eight connected stories—often identified as Alice Munro's only novel—the Nobel Laureate follows the life of Del Jordan, living at the end of the Flats Road on her father's fox farm, where her most frequent companions are an eccentric bachelor family friend and her rough younger brother. As she begins spending more time in the small town of Jubilee, Ontario, she is surrounded by women—including her agnostic, opinionated mother, who sells encyclopedias to local farmers; her mother's boarder, the lusty Fern Dogherty; and Del's best friend Naomi, with whom she shares the frustrations and unbridled glee of adolescence. Through these unwitting mentors, and in her own encounters with sex, birth, and death, Del explores the dark and bright sides of womanhood.

"Marvelous ... a ribald, humorous appreciation of girlhood [that] manages to treat sex in a new way.... A real joy."—Ms.
