WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE© IN LITERATURE 2013 A New York Times Notable Book A Washington Post Notable Work of Fiction A Best Book of the Year: The Atlantic, NPR, San Francisco Chronicle, Vogue, AV Club In story after story in this brilliant new collection, Alice Munro pinpoints the moment a person is forever altered by a chance encounter, an action not taken, or a simple twist of fate. Her characters are flawed and fully human: a soldier returning from war and avoiding his fiancée, a wealthy woman deciding whether to confront a blackmailer, an adulterous mother and her neglected children, a guilt-ridden father, a young teacher jilted by her employer. Illumined by Munro’s unflinching insight, these lives draw us in with their quiet depth and surprise us with unexpected turns. And while most are set in her signature territory around Lake Huron, some strike even closer to home: an astonishing suite of four autobiographical tales offers an unprecedented glimpse into Munro’s own childhood. Exalted by her clarity of vision and her unparalleled gift for storytelling, Dear Life shows how strange, perilous, and extraordinary ordinary life can be.

Das neue Buch der Nobelpreisträgerin Alice Munro! Niemand erzählt eindringlicher davon, wie es wäre, ein neues Leben zu beginnen, als die große kanadische Autorin Alice Munro. »Dir diesen Brief schreiben ist wie einen Zettel in eine Flasche stecken und hoffen, er wird Japan erreichen«, schreibt Greta in der ersten Erzählung und schickt diese Zeilen an Harris, den Zeitungsreporter, der sie nach einer Party fast geküsst hätte. Aber eben nur fast. Auf wenigen Seiten kondensiert Alice Munro die geheimen Träume ihrer Figuren. Vierzehn neue brillante Erzählungen, die mit einem furiosen Finale enden: vier Geschichten, in denen sie so persönlich wie nie (»die ersten und die letzten Dinge, die ich über mein Leben zu sagen habe«) von sich selbst erzählt.

When Canadian Alice Munro was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2013, she had already declared her resignation from the post of short story writer following the publication of her 2012 collection Dear Life. This present volume offers critical analyses of Alice Munro's complete final short story collection. The book's contributors exercise in-depth, close readings of each individual story and situate them in Munro's lifetime oeuvre, as well as in her work's critical reception to date. Scholars set out to show how complex, irritating, disturbing, and enchanting Munro's stories are, and how often all that matters is to hold life dear - or to hold on for (dear) life.

Alice Munro has devoted her entire career to the short story form in her fourteen collections, having won the Nobel Prize in Literature “as master of the contemporary short story”. This edited volume investigates her art as a storyteller, the processes she performs on the contemporary short story genre in her creative anatomical theatre. Divided into five topical sections, it is a collection of scholarly chapters which offer textual insights into a single story, compare two or more texts, or casts a more panoramic view on Munro’s literary production, embracing stories from her first collection Dance of the Happy Shades to her last published Dear Life. Through different critical approaches that range from post-structuralism to cultural studies, from linguistics and rhetorical analyses to translation studies, the authors insist on the concept that no fixed patterns prevail in her short stories, as Munro has constantly developed, challenged, and revised existing modes of generic configuration, while discussing the fluidity, the elusiveness, the indeterminacy, the ambiguity of her superb writing.

The Canadian author Alice Munro, recognized as one of the world s finest short story writers, published some seventeen books between 1968 and 2014, and was awarded the third Man Booker International Prize in 2009 and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2013. This worldwide recognition of her career calls for a look back at her very first collection of short stories, Dance of the Happy Shades, published in 1968 and composed of fifteen stories written between 1953 and 1967. Some forty-five years after the publication of this first volume, worldwide specialists of her work examine the first steps of a great writer, and offer new critical perspectives on a debut collection that already foreshadows some of the patterns and themes of later stories. Contributors adopt a variety of approaches from the fields of narratology, gender studies, psychoanalysis, and genetic criticism, amongst others, to illuminate the main stylistic features, narrative strategies, literary traditions, modes of writing and generic traits of the stories in Dance of the Happy Shades."
