    Routledge Revivals - Mothers and Other Clowns: The Stories of Alice Munro

    First published in 1992, this is the first study of the work of Alice Munro, winner of the 2013 Nobel prize for literature, to focus on her obsession with mothering, and to relate it to the hallucinatory quality of her magic realism. A bizarre collection of clowning mothers parade across the pages of Munro’s fiction, playing practical jokes, performing stunts, and dressing in disguises that recycle vintage literary images. Magdalene Redekop studies this with the aim of gaining increased understanding of Munro’s evolving comic vision.
