Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE® IN LITERATURE 2013

In this series of interweaving stories, Munro recreates the evolving bond between two women in the course of almost forty years. One is Flo, practical, suspicious of other people's airs, at times dismayingly vulgar. the other is Rose, Flo's stepdaughter, a clumsy, shy girl who somehow leaves the small town she grew up in to achieve her own equivocal success in the larger world.

Review:

"Whether Alice Munro's The Beggar Maid is a collection of stories or a new kind of novel, I'm not quite sure, but whatever it is, it's wonderful." John Gardner

Review:

"The stories are absolutely wonderful — every word she writes is interesting." Alice Adams

Review:

"Magical and accurate. Alice Munro creates a world at once familiar and fabulous." Maxine Hong Kingston

About the Author

Alice Munro grew up in Wingham, Ontario, and attended the University of Western Ontario.
