My stories have gotten around quite remarkably for short stories. I would really hope that this would make people see the short story as an important art, not something you play around with until you got a novel written.
Many of her stories focus on characters living in small, rural towns in Ontario. Hence my affinity for some of her work! While different than Flannery O'Connor who also wrote short stories as well, Munro nonetheless injects dark irony into many of her tales.
An example of that irony is her short story, The Bear Went Over the Mountain which was adapted into a movie, Away from Her (see Gordon Pinset on the film, Away From Her, below).
