Alice Munro

£8.99

Product description

Alice Munro's standing as a major contemporary author has long been acknowledged in her native Canada, especially among her fellow writers. Her reputation developed slowly, from small magazines and radio in the fifties, to three Governor General's Awards and regular appearances in The New Yorker. As a short story writer she is working within a critically neglected genre. Yet short fiction displays an intensity of language and experience that is rarely sustainable across longer forms. Drawing on Bakhtinian theory, Ailsa Cox looks at ways in which Munro develops the short story's affinity with the present moment to suggest a fluid and ever-changing reality.

Alice Munro by Alisa Cox. Published by Northcote House 2004. Part of the 'Writers and their Work' series. 113pp. Paperback. Book condition: Good - clean covers and clean throughout aside from tipex over former owner's inscription.
