In “The Office” a young housewife is convinced that an office of one’s own is what she needs to be a real writer–but when she finds the perfect place, her landlord presents an unexpected and surprising obstacle; in “Dolly”, our protagonist is confident that she and her husband have the enduring love of late life—until Franklin’s old flame, Gwen, pops up. From Munro’s first short story collection to her most recent, these two stories showcase the irony, humor, and surprise found in Munro’s heroines. (Word for Word)
