A story collection brimming with hope, adveristy, and wonder, Canada’s beloved writer displays her compassionate understanding of ordinary lives to full effect.

Tracing generations of Munro’s family, from the titular story—where through a haze of whiskey Alice’s ancestors gaze north from Edinburgh Castle at the Fife coast, believing that it is North America—to Munro’s firstperson stories, set during her lifetime, and all the way to the final story, where we travel with “Alice Munro” today. In the author’s words, these stories “pay more attention to the truth of a life than fiction usually does. But not enough to swear on.”

NOBEL PRIZE AUTHOR: Munro was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2013

CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED: The book received international and laudatory review coverage when first published in 2006, and the titular story was excerpted in The New Yorker.

ALICE MUNRO is perhaps one of Canada’s greatest literary figures. The first Canadian to win a Nobel prize in literature (2013), Munro has won the love of readers from all over the world with her mastery over the short story format, with collections of her work having been translated into as many as thirteen languages, and initial versions of her work being published in a number of major journals, including The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, and The Paris Review. Munro is the recipient of three Governor General awards, The Trillium Book Award, The Giller Prize, and the Man Booker International Prize.

Author Residence: Clinton, ON ; Comox, BC

Praise for The View From Castle Rock:

“Masterful…. Munro really does know magic: how to summon the spirits and the emotions that animate our lives.”—The Washington Post Book World

“Fascinating…. Munro’s powers are at their peak…. She continues to charge forward, shining a light on what is most fearsome and true.”—Chicago Tribune

“Exhilarating…. [Munro’s] ability to travel into the minds and feelings of people long dead is uncanny.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Revelatory…. A work of aching authenticity.”—The Boston Globe
