Review: Short story collections | Books | The Guardian
These tales have the intimacy of a family photo album and the organic feel of real life. E non ho potuto fare altro che seguirla affascinata in questi racconti che mi hanno attratto irresistibilemnte, come i topi ilari e inconsapevoli, dietro il suono del flauto magico. And it’s not entertainment. Questi nove racconti sono autentici capolavori.
Growing Up Ethnic in America. Ahhh, I’ll keep reading for a few more pages and pick it up’, and then “she” kisses “him” and five years later “he” dies and the story ends. Horsemen of the Sands.
But Munro’s stories spurn the idea alcie the short form as a fleeting glimpse of disposable characters’ lives, a casually sophisticated backheel from the writer propelling them into a tidy ending.
It does, however, suggest that literary appreciation is fast becoming a matter of cultural grooves, in which if you don’t care for antiques, you might dig dogs. She presents humanity with all its flaws intact.

What she can’t know is mundo Ken’s teenage daughter and her friend are playing a bad taste joke on her and writing letters in the widower’s name.
Sei mesi per leggerlo.
No beauty queen, ever. Books of the Week.
One can understand why Lionel might not be jumping on board with the whole marriage proposition, if Lorna and Brendan are his role models. There is no explicit content. At times, the bitterness becomes overpowering. And I don’t mean to suggest that Munro does not evoke this character type with great skill and sensitivity, because she absolutely does—and in fact, many of these male characters, in her hands, end up eliciting some degree of sympathy in the reader’s mind: Forse meno consigliato a chi, come mepreferisce romanzi piuttosto che racconti e non impazzisce per le storie sentimentali.
How true to life. What I always love about Munro is just how deep she goes into human interaction. Distant wars summarily subtract sons and munri scorching milk pans throw together disagreeable companions; random Christmas presents lurk beneath the surface of devoted marriages.
