Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage is a book of short stories by Alice Munro, published by McClelland and Stewart in 2001. In 2006, the story "The Bear Came over the Mountain" was adapted into a film, Away from Her, directed by Sarah Polley and produced by Atom Egoyan. Following the release of this film, the collection was republished under the title Away from Her.

So, I loved Hateship, Loveship SO much, I did a little homework and found out that it was based on a short story by Canadian writer, Alice Munro. A short story of only 54 pages was the inspiration for that prisingly-love-this film. You know, the truly Modern Fools’ Bells that folks wear are the heavy Balls and Chains of marital and extramarital mélanges and their resultant Fatal Aporias. The most ingenious traps we lay in Life are those we, ourselves, fall into!

Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage. Women look back at their young selves, at first marriages made when they were naive and trusting, at husbands and their difficult, demanding little ways. There is in this new collection an underlying heartbreak, a sense of regret in her characters for what might have been, for a fork in the road not taken, a memory suppressed in an act of prudent emotional housekeeping.

Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage is, of course, no. .Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage is Munro at her best, tirelessly observant, serenely free of illusion, deeply an.

Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage is, of course, no exception. It is a fairly conservative collection of nine stories, none of which move far beyond Munro's favored settings: the tiny towns and burgeoning cities of southern Ontario and British Columbia. No. Forecast: Munro's collections are true modern classics, as the 75,000 first printing of her latest attests. Expect vigorous sales. Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage is Munro at her best, tirelessly observant, serenely free of illusion, deeply and gloriously humane.

In this superb collection from one of our finest writers, nine stories draw us immediately into that special place known as Alice Munro territory—a place where an unexpected twist of events or a suddenly recaptured memory can trace the arc of an entire life. Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage provides the deep pleasures and rewards that Alice Munro’s large and ever-growing audience has come to expect.

I make time to read this (I usually am too busy with my kids to read as much as I'd like.) Each sentence she writes is a masterpiece, it's amazing! The amount of detail that she weaves into her stories is spellbinding. She takes the reader on a journey that consistently goes places you wouldn't expect and starts and ends her stories where you have a sense there was so much more before and after just what she puts down in print. The stories have a real life of their own and they meander through these languid twists and turns that make describing her stories impossible. I have more than once tried to explain what I'm reading and find I really can't express what the story is about without repeating all of these crazy details that tie the whole thing together. There's so much going on in each short story that I feel like I'm exercising areas in my mind that I don't normally use. Brilliant writing. Very enjoyable. I totally recommend this book!

I was a bit disappointed after I finished reading this book, because of the reviews I had read about Munro’s work had created so much expectation. These are all stories in which everyday women of different ages are the protagonists. They all face some vicissitude that makes them vulnerable or puts them in disadvantage, at the mercy of chance or at risk of suffering, but they all manage, somehow, to be heroes without getting out of the normality of life. A nice touch is that all stories see the characters as entities who age and evolve with time. This is a book that feminists will love, since it honors the conspicuous and vibrant presence of women’s views in our contemporary world.

I was disappointed by the form. I expected fireworks from a Nobel laureate. The style feels monotonous and the dynamics a bit repetitive. The characters are very similar from story to story and the text reads at times as a scientific paper. There is an anthropological approach to her writting. I guess she also writes with the nostalgia, and stoich and bitter resignation that comes with age. This is a bit distracting. She is still entertaining and ends up offering a progressive and optimistic, but maybe utopian recount.

When Alice Munro won the Nobel prize for literature this year I knew I'd have to give her a try. Although she may have written a novel or two, her real forte is the short story. At first I thought I'd get a broad compilation of her work but after researching a bit I realized I needed to read one of her collections based on a theme. I'm glad this is the book I first reached for.

She tells a series of nine stories about relationships between men and women, married or not. In the first story, from which the book takes its name, a woman enters into a correspondence with another man - or at least she thinks she does; in actuality the young girl whom she takes care of and the girl's friend have been intercepting the letters and forging love letters in return. As a result of the letters, the protagonist leaves the house she is working in to live with the man she thought she had been corresponding with. Yeah; imagine that for a moment.

Many of the men in the stories are hard bitten, small, mean, and abusive - either physically or emotionally. The women either make adjustments or break clean.

One of my favorite literature courses in college was Southern Short Stories; if you've never read "Why I Live at the P.O." by Eudora Welty, stop what your are doing and read it now. Pacing and details are much different from novels. Short stories start in medias res (in the midst of things) whereas novels are "ab ovo" (from the egg). These are long form short stories so we don't start smack down in the middle of everything but you do you have to spend some effort to pull pieces together. I'm so used to the novel form, that it took some getting used to. But It was definitely worth it.

I highly recommend Alice Munro - and this seems a great place to start.

This collection of short stories is mind-blowingly good. Other reviewers have already offered descriptions of the content so I will just use this opportunity to RAVE about Alice Munro. She is pitch perfect on every level. Actually, she is beyond pitch perfect. Multiple times, I stopped and re-read sentences and passages to savor her beautiful writing, observations, turns of phrase, etc. I plan to go on to read all of her works, then re-read them (something I never do), and I am so looking forward to basking in the brilliance that is Alice Munro. I read a lot (I have a daily hour and a half train commute and am in a book club) and it's only every couple of years that I come across a writer as good as Alice Munro.
One word of advice -- read each story in its entirety, then stop, and wait until the next day to read the next story. Each story is as tightly crafted and as rich as a good novel, and you will benefit from the time taken to contemplate them on your own.
