WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE(R) IN LITERATURE 2013This acclaimed, bestselling collection also contains the celebrated stories that inspired the Pedro Almodovar film Julieta. Runaway is a book of extraordinary stories about love and its infinite betrayals and surprises, from the title story about a young woman who, though she thinks she wants to, is incapable of leaving her husband, to three stories about a woman named Juliet and the emotions that complicate the luster of her intimate relationships. In Munro's hands, the people she writes about-women of all ages and circumstances, and their friends, lovers, parents, and children-become as vivid as our own neighbors. It is her miraculous gift to make these stories as real and unforgettable as our own.
