Example text

Nothing of the sort can be said of the ten such volumes published between 1987, when W. R. Martin’s Alice Munro: Paradox and Parallel was published, and 1994, when Ajay Heble’s The Tumble of Reason: Alice Munro’s Discourse of Absence appeared. More than this, during the same period, essays continued; a brief, though very fine, biography by Catherine Sheldrick Ross appeared; and Coral Ann Howells, who would later publish what is still perhaps the best single-authored book on Munro, offered an extended consideration of Munro in her Private and Fictional Words: Canadian Women Novelists of the 1970s and 1980s (1987).

After some delay caused by Munro’s refusal to allow her to quote from her letters in the Calgary archive, McCaig published Reading In: Alice Munro’s Archives (2002). Focused on what is available in the archive, rather than on Munro’s fiction, the book is more a meditation on the uses of evidence than any real critical or biographical analysis. Infused with inappropriate theoretical analyses, avoiding historical and biographical contexts, and defiantly iconoclastic in its cultural-studies approach to the Munro archive, Reading In is just not a very good book.
