Description
(New York Times Book Review Best Book of the Year) Nobel Prize winner Alice Munro—also previously the winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award and a three-time Governor General's Literary Award winner—presents this collection of stories about love and its infinite betrayals and surprises. The runaway of the title story is a young woman who, though she thinks she wants to, is incapable of leaving her husband. In "Passion," a country girl emerging into the larger world through her job in a resort hotel discovers, in a moment of insight, the limits and lies of that mysterious emotion. Three stories are about a woman named Juliet at three stages of her life, and in "Powers," a woman with the ability to read the future sets off a chain of events that ensnares a friend and her husband-to-be in the lifelong pursuit of what such a gift really means.

"She outjoices Joyce and checkmates Chekhov.... Each of the stories in Runaway contains enough lived life to fill a typical novel.... Her women are heroic.... They endure in the mind of the reader."—Boston Globe
