Inhaltsangabe: Ranging from the 1850s through two world wars to the present, and from Canada to Brisbane, the Balkans and the Somme, these dazzling stories reveal the secrets of unconventional women who refuse to be contained.
From the Inside Flap:
In these eight tales, Munro evokes the devastating power of old love suddenly recollected. She tells of vanished schoolgirls and indentured frontier brides and an eccentric recluse who, in the course of one surpassingly odd dinner party, inadvertently lands herself a wealthy suitor from exotic Australia. And Munro shows us how one woman's romantic tale of capture and escape in the high Balkans may end up inspiring another woman who is fleeing a husband and lover in present-day Canada.
"Open Secrets is a book that dazzles with its faith in language and in life."--"New York Times Book Review

Buchbeschreibung McClelland & Stewart Ltd, Westminster, Maryland, U.S.A., 1994. Hardcover. Buchzustand: Fine. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Fine. Hard cover with dust jacket in fine condition.Open Secrets, Alice Munro's eighth book, consists of eight matchless stories, each one as rich as a full novel. All of them provide compulsive reading and rewarding re-reading. "Perhaps you will be surprised to hear from a person you don't know and that doesn't remember your name." These intriguing words begin a letter dated 1917 to the Librarian in Carstairs, Ontario (the heart of Alice Munro Country). The letter sweeps us away into a world of secrets and revelations where nothing not even a courtship by letter that leads, over time, to a solid marriage is as it originally seems. The Ontario stories range from A Wilderness Station, which gives an account of an 1852 tree-felling accident and sheds light on the harsh life of the pioneers, all the way to the present, where family names known to us appear again in a world of TV shows and snowmobiles. Just as the stories range back and forth in time, they also travel far to distant settings. Much of "The Albanian Virgin is set in a remote mountain area where a Canadian tourist in the 1920s is captured by bandits; her tale of escape is comforting to a Victoria bookseller escaping from her own former life. The Jack Randa Hotel brings a deserted wife in cold pursuit to Australia, which leads to another intriguing letter. Dear Mrs. Thornaby, It has come to my attention that you are dead. Book.
