Runaway by Alice Munro (61)
Generally I don't read anthologies of short stories. I had heard good things about this author so I decided to read one of her books. Runaway contains 8 stories of women based on a theme: running away from something. The characters in the stories are very well developed; they feel like people I could possibly have met. The problem with most short stories is that it takes some time to get engrossed in each story but that was not a problem with this book. I will be looking for more books by the same author.
