A little too much edge.....

Too Much Happiness: Stories Too Much Happiness: Stories by Alice Munro


My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I am a real Alice Munro fan. This group of stories I found as disturbing as her stories usually are, as well written as usual, but somehow, not as satisfying. The last story in particular, which lends it's title to the collection, was very much not in keeping with her other works. In most of her stories, all is not as it appears when the stories set out; the little twists and turns are often innocuous seeming but take on a edge that can disarm and disturb. This collection seems more that way than previous collections.
