Munro // Dear Life

I’m not sure how Dear Life – by Alice Munro – got into my library queue. Maybe, as often happens, I heard someone talking about something banal making them happy and I thought of the title of her other collection Too Much Happiness and I thought I should read some more Alice Munro.

What struck my about this set of stories is how deftly Munro moves between characters and points of view so economically.

Notes and quotes…

from Dolly

4108 No indeed. I had forgotten how old we were, forgotten everything. Thinking there was all the time in the world to suffer and complain.
