Description

The incomparable Alice Munro's bestselling and
rapturously acclaimed Runaway is a book
of extraordinary stories about women of all ages and circumstances—and about love
and its infinite betrayals and surprises. The runaway of the title story is a
young woman who is incapable of leaving her husband. In "Passion," a country
girl emerging into the larger world via a job in a resort hotel discovers, in a
single moment of insight, the limits and lies of passion. Three stories concern
a woman named Juliet—in the first, she escapes from teaching at a girls' school
into a wild love affair; in the second, she returns with her child to the home
of her parents, whose marriage she finally begins to examine; and in the last,
her vanished child turns up caught in the grip of a religious cult. In these
and other stories, Alice Munro's understanding of the people about whom she
writes makes their lives as real as our own.
