The only novel from bestselling author Alice Munro, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature Catching frogs, grazing knees, singing songs to save England from Hitler – that was childhood for Del Jordan, and now shes impatient for more. More than she can find in the encyclopedias sold by her mother, or in the half-understood innuendos dispensed by best friend Naomi, or in the whispers of boys during Friday night dances. Just like the girls in the movies, she wants to get started on real life. In her only novel, Alice Munro turns her eye to the frustrations, embarrassments, glee and bewilderment of adolescence, and to the brushes with sex, death, violence and birth that shape the lives of girls and women. I am the perfect audience for her brand of quiet, seething feminism Lena Dunham Superb Independent In Munros work, nothing can be predicted. Emotions erupt. Preconceptions crumble. Surprises proliferate Margaret Atwood Exact and unflinching Guardian She is one of the handful of writers, some living, most dead, whom I have in mind when I say that fiction is my religion Jonathan Franzen
