'This is a wonderful collection of stories, beautifully written and deeply felt' New York Times

Read Alice Munro's dark and powerful exploration of the human heart in this ten-story collection.

'Brilliant at evoking life's diversity and unrivalled chronicler of human nature under a vast span of aspects, moods, and pressures' Sunday Times

A woman haunted by dreams of her dead mother. An adulterous couple stepping over the line where the initial excitement ends, and the pain begins. A widow visiting a Scottish village in search of her husband's past - and instead, discovering unsettling truths about a total stranger. The ten stories in this collection not only astonish and delight but also convey the unspoken mysteries at the heart of all human experience.
