Moons of Jupiter by Alice Munro

Moons of Jupiter by Alice Munro. 1983 Knopf, first American edition, 233 pages.  Includes review slip and author photo. Alice Munro was a beloved Nobel Prize-winning Canadian short-story writer who expertly and sometimes humorously portrayed everyday small-town life. Deborah Treisman in the New Yorker described her writing as "There was, in her writing, often a very deliberate, confident moment of calling attention to herself—an attempt to startle, to pierce with words and meaning—and then a more modest retreat. Fireworks, followed by starlight." Moons was her fourth collection.

"When you start really letting go this is what it's like. A lick of pain, furtive, darting up where you don't expect it. Then a lightness. "
