Runaway by Alice Munro EN

Rating: 4     47 Votes
Description:
**Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature** The matchless Munro makes art out of everyday lives in this exquisite short story collection.

Runaway is about the power and betrayals of love, about lost children, lost chances. There is pain and desolation beneath the surface, like a needle in the heart, which makes these stories more powerful and compelling than anything she has written before. Winner of the Man Booker International Prize 2009.
