MUNRO, Alice. The Moons of Jupiter : Stories by Alice Munro. Toronto : Macmillan of Canada, (1982). First Printing. Pp. (6),[1]-233,(1). 8vo, tan cloth spine, rust boards, metallic copper titles to spine. Thacker, Alice Munro: An Annotated Bibliography A5. Shortlisted for the 1982 Governor-General' s Award for English language fiction. Munro's fourth collection of short stories. "Whether the setting is familiar or not, the stories always ring true, because of Alice Munruo's way with her characters, or, more precisely, her people. They may be innocent or sly, prudish or sensual, cynical or hopeful -- yet they are always recognizable. They may be young teachers (as in 'Accident'), women in an old people's home ('Mrs. Cross and Mrs. Kidd'), middle-aged women who have bad luck with men ('Prue'), or the narrator's father dying in a Toronto hospital in the wonderful story from which this collection takes its title. All are memorable, and uncannily familiar." - from the dustjacket. Includes the following stories: "Chaddeleys and Flemings", "Dulse", "The Turkey Season", "Accident", "Bardon Bus", "Prue", "Labor Day Dinner", "Mrs. Cross and Mrs. Kidd", "Hard-Luck Stories", "Visitors", and "The Moons of Jupiter". Miniscule stain to fore-edge of rear flyleaf, else a very good copy in crisp dustjacket. Signed without inscription by Munro on the title page. 200.00
