"Dear Life", likely Munro's last original short stories collection, was published in 2012 by McClelland and Stewart's Douglas Gibson Books. 

This is the first Canadian edition first printing with first state dust jacket that is unclipped, reflecting the correct price of $32.99. The book is bound in cream board with gilt lettering, and has no topstain.  The copyright page should have a complete number line: "1 2 3 4 5 16 15 14 13 12". 

This book is not particularly rare and a VG copy can be purchased at eBay or Abebooks at about $50. This is a NF copy with a NF dust jacket and a NF book that is tight and clean. 
There are no official signed first editions but you can find signed copies of this edition. Munro's signature is rather simple, so caveat emptor.
