"How does one know when one is in the grip of art, a major talent? One feels it in the assurance, the sensibility behind every line of a work; one knows its presence as much from what is withheld as from what is given or explained. It is art that speaks from the pages of Alice Munro's stories." -- Wall Street Journal

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!!Was this review helpful?
