Paperback edition

€ 14.95

In this collection of short stories whole lives come into focus through single events or sudden memories which bring the past bubbling to the surface. The past, as Munro's characters discover, is made up not only of what is remembered, but also what is not. If memories have not been savoured, recalled in the mind and boxed away, it's as if they have never been- until a moment when the pieces of the jigsaw re-form, sometimes pleasurably but often painfully.

Women look back at their young selves, at first marriages when they were naïve and trusting, at husbands and their difficult, demanding little ways. Here is underlying heartbreak, a sense of regret in Munro's characters for a fork in the road not taken, a memory supressed in an act of prudent emotional housekeeping. But there is also hope, and second chances-here are people who reinvent themselves, seize life by the throat, who have moved on and can risk conjuring up hidden memories, daring to go beyond what is actually remembered.
