Dear Life (5)  Munro, Alice

In story after story in this brilliant new collection, Alice Munro pinpoints the moment a person is forever altered by a chance encounter, an action not taken, or a simple twist of fate that turns a person out of his or her accustomed path and into a new way of being or thinking. A poet, finding herself in alien territory at her first literary party, is rescued by a seasoned newspaper columnist and is soon hurtling across the continent, young child in tow, toward a hoped-for but completely unplanned meeting. A young soldier returning to his fiancée from the Second World War, steps off the train before his stop and onto the farm of another woman, beginning a life on the move. A wealthy young woman having an affair with the married lawyer hired by her father to hand his estate come up with a surprising way to deal with the blackmailer who finds them out.  REQUEST IT!
