Nobel-winning Canadian author Alice Munro’s collection of short stories examines the lives of Canadian women set against profound social change, from religious practice and the sexual revolution to family structures.

Three of the stories -- the basis for Pedro Almodovar’s 2016 film Julieta -- follow a character through a series of betrayals and missed opportunities.

Runaway was awarded the Giller Prize and the Atwood Gibson Writers' Trust Fiction Prize.

‘Alice Munro has a strong claim to being the best fiction writer now working in North America. Runaway is a marvel.’Jonathan Franzen, The New York Times Book Review.

‘Maître incontestée de la nouvelle, la Canadienne cisèle des histoires universelles de femmes en fuite.’ Le Monde.
