Staff Reviews

If rumors are to be believed, this is Alice Munro's last book. She claims she is retiring from writing (though she said the same thing several years ago), and while the thought is devastating, it gives new meaning to this collection. Munro writes about her own childhood here, in four stories that she says are "the closest things I have to say about my own life." Dear Life is beautifully illuminating. To call these novels compressed into stories does not do them justice--they are stories, brilliantly executed and in a class of their own. I didn't want any of them to end, but when they did, it was perfect.

— Kat

The very deserving recipient of last year’s Nobel Prize for Literature
delivers another beautiful and heartbreaking collection of stories.
Filled with simple, honest moments that reveal the depths of her
all-too-human characters, Munro’s writing appears effortless, but the
casual asides, detours, and odd details are the precise and
compassionate brushstrokes of a master painting tableaus of uncanny
artistry and power. The book is simply dazzling.
