Alice Munro's stories touch her all too familiar environment around Lake Huron in Ontario, and explore the moment that life is illuminated. In one story she tells readers about a seventy-five year old woman who believes her eighty-three year old husband is about to leave her for an old flame. In another, set in a TB sanitarium, where a young woman who takes a job teaching the children falls in love with the sanitarium's doctor whose own opinion is masked in mystery. Munro's writing carries a stoic and autobiographical tone at times, showing readers her capacity for the art of short story writing.
