Friend of My Youth by Alice Munro

Although academics have made a career from the oeuvre of Alice Munro – AM: Paradox and Parallel; AM: Art and Gender; AM: writing her lives; AM: Mothers and Other Clowns; etc etc etc…. – she does not need to be laboured over. In the case of this book, take short story writer Alan Beard’s five line review. A line for each star. I agree. It’s an especially good collection.

Rather than elaborate unnecessarily on that, I am merely going to note that I more or less found myself on the page in the story ‘Oranges and Apples’. Amongst other things, it’s a story about how a person reads and relates to the rest of the world. I will write it down some time.
