From the 2013 Nobel laureate in Literature--and perhaps our most beloved author: a beautifully repackaged reissue of Alice Munro's Selected Stories (1968-1994), now retitled A Wilderness Station
     Spanning almost thirty years and settings that range from big cities to small towns and farmsteads of rural Canada, this magnificent collection brings together twenty-eight stories by a writer of unparalleled wit, generosity, and emotional power. Alice Munro makes lives that seem small unfold until they are revealed to be as spacious as prairies and locates the moments of love and betrayal, desire and forgiveness, that change those lives forever. To read these stories--about a traveling salesman and his children on an impromptu journey; an abandoned woman choosing between seduction and solitude--is to succumb to the spell of a writer who enchants her readers utterly even as she restores them to their truest selves.

ALICE MUNRO grew up in Wingham, Ontario, and attended the University of Western Ontario. She has published thirteen collections of stories and a novel. During her distinguished career she has been the recipient of many awards, including two Giller Prizes, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Man Booker International Prize. In 2013 she was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Her stories have appeared in The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, Harper's Magazine, The Paris Review, Granta, and many other publications, and her collections have been translated into thirteen languages. She lives in Port Hope, Canada, on Lake Ontario.

"Her stories are like few others. One most go back to Tolstoy and Chekhov ... for comparable largeness." --John Updike, The New York Times Book Review
"Munro is a great short story writer ... These stories are loosely woven and brilliantly wrought ... she is unique, there is no one quite like her." --A.S. Byatt, The Globe and Mail
"A wonderful sampling of vintage Munro ... For those who have never read her, there is no better place to begin. And for those long familiar with her writing, there remain surprises and rediscoveries." --San Francisco Chronicle
"[A] literary sensation ... told with such perfect pitch that the results are stunning." --USA Today
