Superfluous Matter
Books - Runaway, by Alice Munro

I continue to fail to prioritize regular reading in my life, but because I'm reading short story collections I am not penalized when I ignore my current book for weeks at a time.

Runaway is one of Munro's more recent collections (2004) and it won the Scotiabank Giller Prize. I think this may be my favourite collection so far. As always it's hard for me to separate the quality of her work from the warm fuzzies I get due to the familiarity of the settings, but I'm pretty sure this collection is another unequivocal win.
