The Love of a Good Woman by Alice Munro

**Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature**

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. Here are women behaving badly, leaving husbands and children, running off with unsuitable lovers, pushing everyday life to the limits, and if they dont behave badly, they think surprising and disturbing thoughts.

What does the author accomplish by dividing "Jakarta" into two parts—the distant past and the present? In what essential way do the two marriages Kath and Kent; Sonje and Cottar differ? In "Cortes Island," why did the narrator and her husband decide to marry, and how does the marriage evolve?

She is also one of the two or three best writers of fiction of any length now alive. The title story of this collection is one of her masterpieces
