Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage

Stories. Winner of the Man Booker International Prize 2009

WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE® IN LITERATURE 2013

In the her tenth collection (the title story of which is the basis for the new film Hateship Loveship) , Alice Munro achieves new heights, creating narratives that loop and swerve like memory, and conjuring up characters as thorny and contradictory as people we know ourselves.
A tough-minded housekeeper jettisons the habits of a lifetime because of a teenager's practical joke. A college student visiting her brassy, unconventional aunt stumbles on an astonishing secret and its meaning in her own life. An incorrigible philanderer responds with unexpected grace to his wife's nursing-home romance. Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage is Munro at her best, tirelessly observant, serenely free of illusion, deeply and gloriously humane.
Rezension
"Surely Munro's best yet." - The New York Times Book Review

"She is the living writer most likely to be read in a hundred years." -Mona Simpson, The Atlantic Monthly

"One of the foremost practitioners of the art of the short story. . . . These tales have the intimacy of a family photo album and the organic feel of real life." - The New York Times

"A writer to cherish. . . . The sheer spaciousness of Munro's storytelling, her gift for surprising us with the truth about ourselves, has transcended national boundaries." - Los Angeles Times Book Review

"In Munro's hands, as in Chekhov's, a short story is more than big enough to hold the world-and to astonish us, again and again." -Chicago Tribune

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
