What Rhian's Not Mentioning About Alice Munro

My wife, in her last post, didn't mention that we have Alice Munro's new book sitting on the coffee table, where it's been sitting for weeks, unread.

Why are we avoiding our favorite living writer? Because the stories in this new book are autobiographical. Alice Munro says so, right there in the introduction. If we open it up, we may find out the truth. And nothing's scarier than that.

Too funny. I just came across a writer that has me interested (here I am on the website) and I felt the same way. Much like music videos. You can hear the song, love it, see the video and be left with a sour taste in your mouth.
