Alice Munro's new book is out. It is called Runaway and, yes, the stories keep on getting better. It doesn't matter whether you've read most of them in the New Yorker. Having them together to read when you want is a blessing. A beautiful cover from Random. At some point Munro will have to be awarded a prize devised for her and her alone, The Anton Chekhov Award for the Concise Expression of Human Feeling or something of that order. No one writes better stories anywhere.
