Description
(National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist) This 2001 collection of nine stories by Nobel Prize winner Alice Munro—also published as Away from Her, the title of the 2006 film by Atom Egoyan and Sarah Polley based on the story "The Bear Came Over the Mountain"—delves deeply into Munro's particular territory, where a sudden turn of events or unexpected recollection can illumine an entire life. A college student visiting her aunt for the first time stumbles upon a long-hidden secret and its meaning in her own life. A young cancer patient is stunned by good news and a suddenly regained future. A woman recollecting an afternoon's wild lovemaking with a stranger realizes how the memory of that encounter has both changed her and sustained her through a lifetime. And in the title story—which was itself adapted as the 2013 independent film Hateship, Loveship, with Nick Nolte and Jennifer Jason Leigh—the fate of a strong-minded housekeeper with a "frizz of reddish hair," just entering the dangerous country of old-maid-hood, is unintentionally (and deliciously) reversed by a teenage girl's practical joke.

"These stories examine the dance between the sexes—from playing in the mud to rolling in the hay to consigning a partner's ashes to the ground. Throughout, Munro's moves are as intricate and startling as the rituals she transcribes are inevitable."—The New Yorker
