It has to be noticed that Ms. Munro has not been awarded for what she represented in her short stories but how she represented it. Her stories almost has a feel of a novel. The detailing of the characters are so minute that you feel attached to the characters by the time the story is over. For ex- in “Lives of Girls and Women”, she deals with budding sexuality and the emotions – the horror and thrill – during the period or in “Dear Life” where the narrator is an infant being whisked inside the house by her mother as a neighbor approaches. She has created a large body of work, each of which has an individual style that surprises you.
We hope that short story writers move with a new zeal from now on and that she does not retire from writing and publishing.
