The Moons of Jupiter

Paperback

Price: $16.00

Overview

In these endlessly surprising stories, many things happen: there are betrayals and reconciliations, love affairs consummated and mourned. But the true events in The Moons of Jupiter are the ways in which the characters are transformed over time.
“How does one know when one is in the grip of art, a major talent? One feels it in the assurance, the sensibility behind every line of a work; one knows its presence as much from what is withheld as from what is given or explained. It is art that speaks from the pages of Alice Munro’s stories.”
— “Wall Street Journal”
