La description

This volume begins with a major new essay by renowned short story critic and theorist Charles E. May, followed by a major new essay by one of Munro’s most long-standing and most perceptive readers, Catherine Sheldrick Ross. Overall, the 20 contributions to Alice Munro Everlasting take an ardently literary approach, with each essay focussing on the last stories in Munro’s fourteen volumes from Dance of the Happy Shades to Dear Life. The many different contributions offer a new model for the art of the critical essay—combining imagination and analysis, personal testimony and scholarship.
