Tuesday Intros: Alice Munro
I'm joining Diane, who hosts Tuesday Intros, with a book of short stories by the Canadian writer, Alice Munro. I like the short story format and she is a great story teller, I believe each and every story that she writes; surely they must be true? They have that little drag at the heart right from the off that makes you concerned for the outcome.
This is the opening paragraph from the first story in this collection called, 'Walker Brother's Cowboy.'
Sometimes a novel can take me over completely so that I read until a very uncivilised hour, but short stories fit neatly into my life and I don't get a husband saying, "What time is it? Will you put out the light!"
