This is my first experience with an Alice Munro book. I know nothing about her other than she is Canadian, has received many awards for her work and is an icon in many ways. Unfortunately, the audio format for the book "Runaway" is weak in that it does not lend itself to the explanations that are sometimes obvious when looking at a book. Unbeknownst to me I listened to the first "story" and then wondered how the next part related to the first part. Did I miss something? Yah, I missed the fact that this is a collection of stories not a stand alone book. Quite ho hum as an audio book. Did not finish it.
