Arrivata al quarto racconto sentivo nostalgia del primo e ricominciavo.
Hanno qualcosa di incompiuto che le lascia sospese, un disegno a matita discontinuo ma ben abbozzato. In Sylvia Townsend Warner’s case, a collection of 20 short stories – many published in the New Yorker but none before appearing in book form – feels far more like the discovery of something unaccountably overlooked.
Or, if Munro left out suspense, then I expected at least a few stories to make me feel something: When I take one up in a reading mood that’s hungry for escape and speedy exci My ambivalence about Lovesbip Munro is reflected well in the fact that I’ve been reading this book which contains no more than nine stories, averaging pages each off and on for something like six years, and only just this late afternoon finished it.
My ambivalence about Alice Munro is reflected well in the fact that I’ve been reading this book which contains no more than nine stories, averaging pages each off and on for something like six years, and only just this late afternoon finished it. Wonder for other lives unlived is never delivered without love of the path chosen, and this balance permeates the stories in many other aspects.
Resigned to being disowned and somehow judged not mknro to the task, we step anxiously into a parallel universe in which giant slugs are discovered in glove compartments, slacker types found dynasties of dog-children after a bit of hanky-panky with a pet, and a feline-featured flatmate turns out to be part of an entire family of circus freaks.
Is this book suitable for a 15 year old? The opening paragraphs of “Family Furnishings” are excellent at this, and the titular story shows a similar character-based flexibility in its use of a roving limited third-person narrator. It does, however, suggest that literary appreciation is fast becoming a loveeship of cultural grooves, in which if you don’t care for antiques, you might dig dogs.
Osservate il suo scivolare lieve, soffice, quasi impalpabile sulla distesa acquorea. All over a matter that could never be resolved.
Though I rarely think this while reading, most of Munro’s stories seem so out of touch with my current life that I had difficulty relating to them even if I could appreciate the craft. She is plain, uninteresting and rather hateehip, so she is taken by surprise when a heated letter declaring passionate love from Ken reaches her.
What’s the story?
Warner is squandered on equilibrium; the best approach to these diminutive masterpieces is to wait for a freak wind of depression or a bout of toothache and then hand yourself over to be enchanted. Read it Forward Read it first. Jun 07, Dolors rated it really liked it Recommended to Dolors by: This summary by one Amazon reviewer gives my impression of the book to a T: Le sue sono donne imperfette, ma belle proprio per questo, donne che in questi nove racconti si confrontano, ciascuna con una sua propria grazia e inadeguatezza, con l’universo maschile, un universo fatto di nemici amici mariti spasimanti amanti, di vite che si sfiorano, si intrecciano, si separano.
And I continue to read and reread her work. On the one hand, it speaks to the familiarity of husband and wife: They went to bed speechless, parted speechless the next morning, and during the day were overtaken by fear – hers that he would never come home, his that when he did she would not be there.
Sure, these stories are very Chekhovian, but never quite as tragic.

Serving as a teasing introduction to these nine brilliantly executed tales, the range of mentioned relationships merely suggests a few of the nuances of human behavior that Munro evokes with the skill of a psychological magician. I want my stories to be something about life that makes people say – not ‘oh, isn’t that the truth’ – alixe to feel some kind of reward from the writing.
Their luck held, however. When this diminutive little lady from small-town Ontario, Canada won the Nobel Prize for Literature she remarked: What she can’t know is that Ken’s teenage daughter and her friend are playing a bad taste joke on her and writing letters in the widower’s name.
Non sono felici, sembrano vivere affidandosi a una precisa routine che non conosce abbandoni, o quasi.

Just a short time before, they alicr been suitors, almost figures of fun, knock-kneed and desperate in their sexual agonies. Ways to Hide in Winter. This collection of stories by Alice Munro is typical of much of her work. A pagina cinque ti pare l’ennesimo libro sopravvalutato. Munro deals in people whose fates have slowly worked themselves out over decades, and whose situations are richly complex and hedged about by history; if a writer must grab their stories out of air, then the resulting snapshots must be understood to be provisional.
This is an exquisite collection. Regardless of situation, however, the basics of survival are endured in stoic sorrow.
