Everyone so often, I take the time to read some short stories. For 8 days this summer, I started my day with one story from Alice Munro’s The Love of a Good Woman. Munro writes about ordinary women, doing ordinary things but somehow makes the stories extraordinary.
For a change, I am not going to summarize the stories of this collection in a blog post. I could not do the stories justice and the reader really needs to discover and savour her amazing storytelling independently. For a list of her works click here.
Alice Munro was born in Wingham, Ontario in 1931 and was honoured in 2013 with with a Nobel Prize in literature. She is an alumnus of the University of Western Ontario and where she published her first short story before leaving to marry her first husband, James Munro and opening Munro Books in Victoria (Alice Munro – The Canadian Encyclopedia).
Take a challenge, start your day with a short story!
