Blurb: Spanning her last five collections and bringing together her finest work from the past fifteen years, this new selection of Alice Munro’s stories infuses everyday lives with a wealth of nuance and insight. (Vintage, July 2014)

“Employing a temporal complexity in their structure that demonstrates her mastery of her craft, Munro’s stories frequently give us the span of a life, so demonstrating how the small intimacies of everyday existence develop an inherent drama when weathered by time and circumstance.”

Kate Saunders, The Times

“If a good short story is the concentrated essence of a whole novel, some of Munro’s stories go one better and give the essence of a whole life. This stunning collection spans the past 15 years; all the stories are immaculate, but the title story, Lying Under the Apple Tree is so extraordinary that it deserves a spotlight.”
