In Sight of the Lake

Episode 2 of 5

A woman goes in search of a doctor, again. 2012 short story by the Canadian Nobel Laureate, read by Liza Ross.

Alice Munro was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2013. She is widely regarded as a doyenne of the short story form, a writer whose acuity and compassion shines through all her work. These stories are from her 2012 collection, Dear Life.

Set mostly in the small towns and quiet domestic surroundings of her native Canada, Munro, as always, captures the ordinary and reveals the extraordinary that lies beneath. Life is laid bare, and the complicated emotions of normal lives resonate long after the final page is turned.

Today in 'In Sight of the Lake' a woman goes in search of a doctor, again.

The reader is Liza Ross,
The abridger is Sally Marmion
The producer is Di Speirs.
