Rezension bezieht sich auf: Selected Stories (Gebundene Ausgabe)
The collection never settles into a single genre of short story. Ms. Munro is a master of them all. The collection mixes and matches so the reader remains vulnerable. Just when you begin to feel that it is getting repetitive, you are blind-sided. I never settled into this large volume, but was unable to leave it.
Life is stranger than fiction, and these tales ride perilously close to being life, but never lose their credibility. There is often the reaction of, "That is one strange story, but yes, I guess it could have happened. Weird but real."
She lacks Toni Morrison's turn of phrase, but is peerles for the ease with which she twists and turns the plots and sub-plots.
An outstanding read.
