You can’t go thinking you are better than other people just because you can learn poems. I’ve remarked on how meandering the middle stories in this book feel, even to the point I think Munro over did it a bit and seemed to be meandering herself as she quested to bring together the themes in The Beggar Maid.

Munro was no young literary phenom-she did not achieve fame in her twenties with stories in The New Yorker. Whether Munro’s adherence to the short form has always been a matter of expediency, or whether it’s just what her stories need to be, hardly matters to readers who love her work. She discusses her stumbling on short fiction in the interview above from 1990 with Rex Murphy.

Alice Munro! Now that’s writing! She’s the kind of writer about whom it is often said-no matter how well-known she becomes-that she ought to be better known. None of this happened overnight. Thus Alice Munro has been among those writers subject to periodic rediscovery, at least outside Canada. It’s as if she jumps out of a cake-Surprise!-and then has to jump out of it again, and then again.

I thought I had read every word Alice Munro had ever written, but this title was unfamiliar to me--
Who Do You Think You Are is a book of connected short stories, featuring Rose, who always seems to know more than is acceptable for a woman of her time and place, and at the same time, doesn't quite have a handle on what other women seemingly know by instinct. The other character is Flo, her stepmother. The stories address the complexities of their relationship as it evolves over many years, as well as Rose's struggles to assume a life that she can reconcile with her intelligence, her love relationships, and the family and community she left behind.

An Alice Munro story is never easy to describe, because it is always about so many things. Her characters, and her deft observation of both their inner and outer worlds are longform poetry, if there is such a thing.

One cannot go wrong with the writing of Alice Munro. Her prose is perfection.

The stories collected here can each stand alone as a masterpiece of characterization and originality. Munro's breadth of talent never ceases to amaze.

Absolutely mesmerizing. I ended up not being able to read it before bed because it kept me up with a dark and anxious distaste for life. On the bright side, it makes one thankful when you compare yourself to the characters in the book, who are well developed and engaging, although hopeless. I reserved reading it to a brightly lit sunbeam. The book is beautiful and poetic however, and not in any pretentious way, which is refreshing. This is my first Alice Munro book and it surely won't be the last.
I'm 16, and choose this book based on a porject at my highschool. I enjoyed the book very much! So much, that I went to the library and got another one. I am no reading Munro's "Open Secrets" which is absolutly incredable!
