Friend Of My Youth

By (author) Alice Munro

**Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature**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.

Reviews of Friend Of My Youth

"Read not more than one of her stories a day, and allow them to work their spell: they are made last" * Observer * "Alice Munro's stories, Friend of My Youth, are wonderful: intricate, deep, full of absorbing and funny detail, and opening into painful and tender memories with cunningly concealed skill " * Independent on Sunday * "She is our Chekhov, and is going to outlast most of her contemporaries" — Cynthia Ozick "Brilliant at evoking life's diversity and unpredictability…an unrivalled chronicler of human nature under a vast span of aspects, moods and pressures" * Sunday Times * "The particular brilliance of Alice Munro is that in range and depth her short stories are almost novels" * Daily Telegraph *
