The new Everyman's Library collection of Alice Munro's work, Carried Away: A Selection of Stories, features 17 pieces that give readers a fascinating overview of her development and range. One of the most skilled and intuitive fiction writers at work today, Munro long ago perfected the short story form. The stories collected here, selected by the author herself, cover a 25-year period and are drawn from early books The Beggar Maid, The Moons of Jupiter as well as from recent volumes, like the bestseller Runaway. With an introduction by Margaret Atwood, this collection is the perfect gift for admirers of Munro, or for readers not yet acquainted with her compassionate, well-crafted stories.
