Book Description:
This is the book about one of the world s great authors, Alice Munro, which shows how her life and her stories intertwine.For almost thirty years Robert Thacker has been researching this book, steeping himself in Alice Munro s life and work, working with her co operation to make it complete. The result is a feast of information for Alice Munro s admirers everywhere.By following the parallel tracks of Alice Munro s life and Alice Munro s texts, he gives a thorough and revealing account of both her life and work. There is always a starting point in reality, she once said of her stories, and this book reveals just how often her stories spring from her life.The book is chronological, starting with her pioneer ancestors, but with special attention paid to her parents and to her early days growing up poor in Wingham. Then all of her life stages the marriage to Jim Munro, the move to Vancouver, then to Victoria to start the bookstore, the three daughters, the divorce, the return to Huron County, and the new life with Gerry Fremlin leading to the triumphs as, story by story, book by book, she gains fame around the world, until rumours of a Nobel Prize circulate . . .
