9780099472254: Runaway

**Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature**

The matchless Munro makes art out of everyday lives in this exquisite collection. Here are men and women of wildly different times and circumstances, their lives made vividly palpable by the nuance and empathy of Munro's writing. Runaway is about the power and betrayals of love, about lost children, lost chances. There is pain and desolation beneath the surface, like a needle in the heart, which makes these stories more powerful and compelling than anything she has written before.

Winner of the Man Booker International Prize 2009.

Product Description:

Runaway

Review:

"Munro is one of my all-time favourite writers. She seems to really see people, like a mind reader who knows what her characters are thinking before they do do, and tells their stories with simplicity and empathy." (Natasha Lunn Red)

" Runaway is so good I don't want to talk about it. Quotation can't do the book justice, and neither can synopsis. The way to do it justice is to read it. Read Munro! Read Munro!" (Jonathan Franzen New York Times Book Review)

"Millions of words have been spilt in attempts to tell us exactly what it means to be human. In Runaway, Munro performs that very miracle" ( The Times)

" A beautiful, echoing collection, and a demonstration of perfected and unflinching form" (Ali Smith Scotsman)

"These stories are breathtaking - they leave you winded with their toughness and brilliance" (Helen Simpson Guardian)
