writing style

the years, in 1954, the population was 827. Writing style Many of Munro's stories are set in Huron County (Huron County, Ontario), Ontario. Her strong regional focus is one of the features of her fiction. Another is the omniscient narrator who serves to make sense of the world. Many compare Munro's small-town settings to writers of the U.S. rural South (Southern United States).
