WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE#65533; IN LITERATURE 2013

Alice Munro has long been heralded for her penetrating, lyrical prose, and in "The Bear Came Over the Mountain" - the basis for Sarah Polley's film Away From Her -- her prodigious talents are once again on display. As she follows Grant, a retired professor whose wife Fiona begins gradually to lose her memory and drift away from him, we slowly see how a lifetime of intimate details can create a marriage, and how mysterious the bonds of love really are.

Interesting women, thoughtful & thought provoking - but two of these so called stories were beyond me. There is a pretty terrific 2013 film of the title piece which is well worth a watch.
