“Whether Alice Munro’s The Beggar Maid is a collection of stories or a new kind of novel I’m not quite sure, but whatever it is, it’s wonderful. The psychological precision . . . is a delight, and the startling twists—the unexpected leaps in time, the transformation of familiar characters—they make the book what books ought to be, a little wild, a little mysterious.”—John Gardner

“The stories are absolutely wonderful-every word she writes is interesting.”—Alice Adams

“The best stories of the year.”—The Nation
