In this collection, Alice Munro captures the lives of ordinary women; their passions and contradictions that lie just below the surface.

‘One of the finest short-story writers of our time…absorbing and brilliant’ Observer

Munro explores women who are unruly, ungovernable, unpredictable, unexpected, funny, sexy, and completely recognisable – and brings their hidden desires bubbling to the surface. The love of a good woman is not as pure and virtuous as it seems: as in her title story it can be needy and murderous.
Here are women behaving badly, leaving husbands and children, running off with unsuitable lovers, pushing everyday life to the limits, and if they don’t behave badly, they think surprising and disturbing thoughts.
