Runaway

Stories. Winner of the Giller Prize 2004

WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE® IN LITERATURE 2013
This acclaimed, bestselling collection also contains the celebrated stories that inspired the Pedro Almodóvar film Julieta. Runaway is a book of extraordinary stories about love and its infinite betrayals and surprises, from the title story about a young woman who, though she thinks she wants to, is incapable of leaving her husband, to three stories about a woman named Juliet and the emotions that complicate the luster of her intimate relationships. In Munro's hands, the people she writes about-women of all ages and circumstances, and their friends, lovers, parents, and children-become as vivid as our own neighbors. It is her miraculous gift to make these stories as real and unforgettable as our own.
Rezension
"Alice Munro has a strong claim to being the best fiction writer now working in North America. Runaway is a marvel." -Jonathan Franzen, The New York Times Book Review
" Runaway may very well be the synthesizing work of one of literature's keenest investigators into the human soul." - USA Today
"She outjoices Joyce and checkmates Chekhov. . . . Each of the stories in Runaway contains enough lived life to fill a typical novel. . . . Her women are heroic. . . . They endure in the mind of the reader." - The Boston Globe
"As with so many of Munro's stories, you read to have your premises altered and deepened. Could anything be better? . . . A beautiful new work." - Los Angeles Times
"The great Alice Munro proves again why short-story writers bow down to her." - Vanity Fair
" Runaway is a big dish of Beluga caviar, sailing in on a sparkling bed of ice, with a mother-of-pearl spoon. You remember: This is why you eat, read, make love, whatever-to be left silly with admiration and delight." - The Washington Post
Praise from fellow writers:
"Her work felt revolutionary when I came to it, and it still does." -Jhumpa Lahiri
"She is one of the handful of writers, some living, most dead, whom I have in mind when I say that fiction is my religion." -Jonthan Franzen
"The authority she brings to the page is just lovely." -Elizabeth Strout
"She's the most savage writer I've ever read, also the most tender, the most honest, the most perceptive." -Jeffery Eugenides
"Alice Munro can move characters through time in a way that no other writer can."-Julian Barnes
"She is a short-story writer who...reimagined what a story can do." -Loorie Moore
"There's probably no one alive who's better at the craft of the short story." -Jim Shepard
"A true master of the form." -Salman Rushdie
"A wonderful writer." -Joyce Carol Oates
