Our first WEDNESDAY date and we will be reading the title story from the collection The Love of a Good Woman by Alice Munro (we were inspired by this article in the Guardian last week).
Alice Ann Munro (b. 10 July 1931) is a Canadian author. The winner of the 2009 Man Booker International Prize for her lifetime body of work, she is also a three-time winner of Canada’s Governor General’s Award for fiction, and a perennial contender for the Nobel Prize. The locus of Munro’s fiction is her native southwestern Ontario. Munro’s writing has established her as “one of our greatest contemporary writers of fiction,” or, as Cynthia Ozick put it, “our Chekhov.”
