Short Quantities Notable Book
Description
By her third book, originally published in 1974, Nobel Laureate Alice Munro was becoming widely recognized for her mastery of the short story. In these 13 stories—including "Material," "How I Met My Husband," and "The Ottawa Valley," as well as the title story—she demonstrates her precise observation, deceptively straightforward prose style, and masterful technique. Munro depicts mothers and daughters, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, and friends contending with their histories and their present, and what they can see of the future.

"How honest and how lovely ... a spellbinding tour through a world of love, menace and surprise.... [Munro] is a writer of enormous gifts and perception."—LATimes

"Munro, the hugely gifted chronicler, is fast becoming one of the world's great totemic writers.... Each short story is a mansion of many rooms."—NYTBR

"[The book] proves beyond question Alice Munro's trenchant ability to capture the essence of personality in the vagaries of human impulses.... It is hard to imagine a perception more acute."—Houston Post
