Runaway by Alice Munro

The incomparable Alice Munro’s bestselling and rapturously acclaimed Runaway is a book of extraordinary stories about love and its infinite betrayals and surprises, from the title story about a young woman who, though she thinks she wants to, is incapable of leaving her husband, to three stories about a woman named Juliet and the emotions that complicate the luster of her intimate relationships.

    Awful, disjointed, depressing, no true story line.Couldn't identify or like any of the characters.

    This book was so boring, I couldn't finish it. Characters were under developed and served no true purpose. It is hard to understand how this book is an award winner and on the New York Times Best Book of the Year list!
