The Mind's Eye explores the ways in which Alice Munro's first collection of short stories, Dance of the Happy Shades, establishes the themes that would continue to animate the work of this Nobel Prize-winning Canadian author over the ensuing forty years. The book's seven chapters address key aspects of Munro's collection: genre; the Gothic and the grotesque; memory and temporality; growing up; gender, mothers and fathers;class; and the artists and society.
