The Love of a Good Woman is a collection of short stories by Canadian writer Alice Munro, published by McClelland and Stewart in 1998. The eight stories of this collection (one of which was originally published in Saturday Night; five others were originally published in The New Yorker) deal with Munro's typical themes: secrets, love, betrayal, and the stuff of ordinary lives.

Alice Munro has a genius for entering the lives of ordinary people and capturing the passions and contradictions that lie just below the surface. In this brilliant new collection she takes mainly the lives of women - unruly, ungovernable, unpredictable, unexpected, funny, sexy and completely recognisable - and brings their hidden desires bubbling to the surface. The love of a good woman is not as pure and virtuous as it seems: as in her title story it can be needy and murderous.

Save bookmarks and read as many as you like.

Eight new stories about what people will do for love, and the unexpected routes their passion will force them to take. A prim, old landlady in Vancouver with a crime of passion lurking in her past. A young mother with a secret life who abandons her children to be with her lover. A country doctor in the 1960s discovered by his daughter to be helping desperate women, his "special patients."These and other fascinating characters weave their way through stories that track the changes that time brings to families, lovers and even to friends who share old, intimate secrets about the "prostration of love"in a collection that is clear-eyed about the clutter of our emotional lives.

The rich layering that gives Alice Munro's work such a strong sense of life is particularly apparent in the title story, in which the death of a local opto-metrist brings an entire community into focus - from the preadolescent boys who find his body to the man who probably killed him, to the woman who must decide what to do about what she might know.

Large, moving, profound - these are stories that extend the limits of fiction.

Because I was reading this book on my Kindle, it was not immediately obvious (to me) that this was a series of short stories and not a novel, so I was a little disconcerted when the narrative changed at change of chapter. I kept waiting for the two themes to connect until I finally caught on (dummy!). Some of the plots are perfectly magnificient and they will haunt you for a long time. Munro can certainly tell a story. The only criticism I have is that occassionally she jumps around in time so I was not sure where I was - but it all eventually comes together. This book has made me hungry for more of Munro so I am looking forward to her newest book which I think is coming out soon. If you like fiction, I highly recommend this book.

Can never get too many stories by Alice Munro.
  • Alsantrius
Who can write a better short story than Alice Munro -- MAYBE Chekhov? These are stories about real people living ordinary lives that are not unusual but unusually interesting. She writes a world we know and makes it glow. Intelligent fiction for intelligent readers.

Spare, and seemingly not demanding but storytelling that seemingly effortlessly takes you inside the complications of relationships. It makes you think
  • Lamranilv
Beautifully written short stories with a real insight into the human condition. Her characters are all flawed just like the people one meets every day in real life.
  • Eayaroler
In grand Alice Munro style, the reader is left with many interpretations as to characters, events, and conclusions. Great stories for discussion in a group setting especially with male and female input!
  • Kigul
A collection of short stories so beautifully written, I read them out loud.
What an amazing short-story writer! She deserves every prize she has ever been given. It doesn't matter which stories or which collection you read, every one is a gem. And, for book-club folks, these collections invite intense discussions about both style and content.
