The past, as Alice Munro’s characters discover, is made up not only of what is remembered, but also what isn’t. The past is there, just out of the picture, but if memories haven’t been savoured, recalled in the mind, and boxed away, it’s as if they have never been – until a moment when the pieces of the jigsaw re-form suddenly, sometimes pleasurably but more often painfully.

Women look back at their young selves, at first marriages made when they were naïve and trusting, at husbands and their difficult, demanding little ways in a collection filled with both underlying heartbreak and hope.
