The matchless Munro makes art out of everyday lives in this dazzling new collection. At its centre are three stories connected into one marvellously rich narrative about Juliet - who escapes from teaching at a girls' school and throws herself into a wild and passionate love match. Here are men and women of wildly different times and circumstances, their lives made vividly palpable by the nuance and empathy of Munro's writing. 'Runaway' is about the power and betrayals of love, about lost children, lost chances. There is pain and desolation beneath the surface, like a needle in the heart, which makes these stories more powerful and compelling than anything she has written.

Review:
Runaway is so good I don't want to talk about it. Quotation can't do the book justice, and neither can synopsis. The way to do it justice is to read it. Read Munro! Read Munro!" -- Jonathan Franzen...Read more
Runaway is so good I don't want to talk about it. Quotation can't do the book justice, and neither can synopsis. The way to do it justice is to read it. Read Munro! Read Munro!" -- Jonathan Franzen New York Times Book Review "Millions of words have been spilt in attempts to tell us exactly what it means to be human. In Runaway, Munro performs that very miracle" The Times "A beautiful, echoing collection, and a demonstration of perfected and unflinching form" -- Ali Smith Scotsman "These stories are breathtaking - they leave you winded with their toughness and brilliance" -- Helen Simpson Guardian "She is a sculptor of the human condition: nothing more and nothing less than an artist" Evening Standard
