Alice Munro, recipient of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature, is undoubtedly among Canadaa€™s greatest living writers. In this unique, intriguing collection, Brenda Pfaus gives fresh insights into some of Munroa€™s most enduring works: Lives of Girls and Women (1971), Who Do You Think You Are? (1978), Dance of the Happy Shades (1968), Something Ia€™ve Been Meaning to Tell You (1974), and The Moons of Jupiter (1982). This collection of essays reaches from the early years of Munroa€™s career through her prime as a writer, when she penned her most influential works.The narrator in a€œThe Spanish Ladya€ wonders when she learns about her husbanda#39;s affair, a€œwhy it is a surprise to find that people ... No wonder she concludes that, a€œwhat we say and feel no longer rings true. ... She feels in the story that something here is not being told because as a former teacher, a€œshe had a great deal of experience listening to the voices of children who were leaving things out. ... Like Dick in a€œThanks For The Ride, a€ Eileen realizes that, a€œsilence is the only possible thing.
