"One drop of hatred in your soul will spread and discolour everything like a drop of black ink in white milk." Alice Munro, The Progress of Love
|Cool drawing of Munro|
I adore Alice Munro's writing because her gift of creating a world in a mere sentence leaves me in serious awe.
In junior high we had read a short story (I am at a loss for the name) by Munro, and it stayed with me all semester. It wasn't just the characters or the plot but the feeling you get from reading words that are so perfectly strung together it makes you wonder why no one else describes people/place/things just like this. In the following summer I went to the library and saw that there was a large hardcover of Munro's Selected Stories.
