Rich and fascinating stories: enough information to imagine a character, but also enough of a lack of information to become flooded by the story. My favorites were: The Progress Of Love, Lichen*, Jesse and Meribeth**, Queer Streak, and to a lesser extent, Circle Of Prayer.

I was hesitant about picking up a book of short stories. I had found that I really just got into them and they were over. This book was terrific, and changed my opinion of short stories altogether. These stories carried me along to very satisfying conclusions. I was drawn in to the vivid descriptions and the very rounded characters, and enjoyed the progression of the narratives. Munro can definitely create an environment populated with interesting characters living their lives one decision at a time. I did find the story 'Eskimo' a little jarring; it did not fit into the whole very well for me. Minor detail.
