View From Castle Rock

Publisher: Penguin Canada
The View from Castle Rock traces the generations of Munro's family, from the title story—where through a haze of whiskey Alice's ancestors gaze north from Edinburgh Castle at the Fife coast, believing that it is North America—to Munro's firstperson stories, set during her lifetime, and all the way to the final story, where we travel with “Alice Munro” today. In the author's words, these stories “pay more attention to the truth of a life than fiction usually does. But not enough to swear on.”
