Review

"Marvelous.... A ribald, humorous appreciation of girlhood [that] manages to treat sex in a new way.... A real joy!"-"Ms."
Praise from fellow writers:
"Her work felt revolutionary when I came to it, and it still does." --Jhumpa Lahiri

"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

?Munro has an unerring talent for uncovering the extraordinary in the ordinary. Newsweek --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

The only novel from Alice Munro-award-winning author of The Love of a Good Woman--is an insightful, honest book, "autobiographical in form but not in fact," that chronicles a young girl's growing up in rural Ontario in the 1940's.
Del Jordan lives out at the end of the Flats Road on her father's fox farm, where her most frequent companions are an eccentric bachelor family friend and her rough younger brother. When she begins spending more time in town, she is surrounded by women-her mother, an agnostic, opinionted woman who sells encyclopedias to local farmers; her mother's boarder, the lusty Fern Dogherty; and her best friend, Naomi, with whom she shares the frustrations and unbridled glee of adolescence.
Through these unwitting mentors and in her own encounters with sex, birth, and death, Del explores the dark and bright sides of womanhood. All along she remains a wise, witty observer and recorder of truths in small-town life. The result is a powerful, moving, and humorous demonstration of Alice Munro's unparalleled awareness of the lives of girls and women. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
