Alice Munro is still winning… 'Dear Life' climbs to No 2

After winning the Nobel Prize in Literature 2013, Alice Munro keeps scoring higher on the literature scene as her current work Dear Life climbs to No 2 on the best sellers chart after 10 weeks.


Two of many quotes from Dear Life: 
“We say of some things that they can't be forgiven, or that we will never forgive ourselves. But we do-we do it all the time.” 


“The thing is to be happy,' he said. 'No matter what. Just try that. You can. It gets to be easier and easier. It's nothing to do with circumstances. You wouldn't believe how good it is. Accept everything and then tragedy disappears. Or tragedy lightens, anyway, you're just there, going along easy in the world.”
