Beach Reads: Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage
In her tenth collection, Alice Munro, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2013, creates narratives that loop and swerve like memory, conjuring up characters as thorny and contradictory as people we know ourselves.
A tough-minded housekeeper jettisons the habits of a lifetime because of a teenager’s practical joke. A college student visiting her brassy, unconventional aunt stumbles on an astonishing secret and its meaning in her own life. An incorrigible philanderer responds with unexpected grace to his wife’s nursing-home romance.
Penn’s Village member Marcia Kravis will read the short story “Post and Beam” from this collection.
