Overview

WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE® IN LITERATURE 2013

In these piercingly lovely and endlessly surprising stories by one of the most acclaimed current practitioners of the art of fiction, many things happen: there are betrayals and reconciliations, love affairs consummated and mourned. But the true events in The Moons Of Jupiter are the ways in which the characters are transformed over time, coming to view their past selves with an anger, regret, and infinite compassion that communicate themselves to us with electrifying force.

I'm a big fan of Alice Munro's short story collections so I was not prepared to NOT enjoy this one of hers! All but the very last story titled "VISITORS" left me unmoved. If this had been the very first collection of short stories written by Munro that I'd ever read, I'm fairly certain I would NOT have bothered to read any of her others -- and that would have been a great pity!!
