9780099422747: Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage

**Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature**

In these stories lives come into focus through single events or sudden memories which bring the past bubbling to the surface. The past, as Alice Munro's characters discover, is made up not only of what is remembered, but also what isn't. The past is there, just out of the picture, but if memories haven't been savoured, recalled in the mind and boxed away, it's as if they have never been - until a moment when the pieces of the jigsaw re-form suddenly, sometimes pleasurably but more often painfully. Women look back at their young selves, at first marriages made when they were naive and trusting, at husbands and their difficult, demanding little ways.

There is in this new collection an underlying heartbreak, a sense of regret in her characters for what might have been, for a fork in the road not taken, a memory suppressed in an act of prudent emotional housekeeping. But at the same time there is hope, there are second chances - here are people who reinvent themselves, seize life by the throat, who have moved on and can dare to conjure up the hidden memories, daring to go beyond what is remembered.

Recensione:

"Another breathtaking demonstration of her mastery of the short story... No one could possibly dispute Munro's greatness; the genius of her seamless, unmatchable prose which nets up the flow of everyday life so miraculously" ( Daily Mail)

"Munro gives each of her stories the rich density of a compacted novel...The distinctive vitality of her stories come from their imaginative limberness... triumphantly displays impressive feats of flexibility, always gracefully adapted to life's twists and turns" ( Sunday Times)

"Munro is an artist of the domestic interior... She stands at an angle to the mass of her contemporaries set aside both by the beauty of her prose and by the calm intensity of her engagement with her material" ( Evening Standard)

"The nine stories in this collection have the kind of spaciousness, the attention to detail, that one expects from lengthier fiction... There is a core of mystery in every Munro story, and that is why re-reading them is such a continuous pleasure" ( Independent)

"Each of her tales contains the depth and scope of a novel...these melancholy, autumnal tales of small-town Canadian life demonstrate the gentle power of the short story at its best" ( New Statesman)

Descrizione del libro:

**Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature**

In this perfect collection, each of Alice Munro's glorious stories is as satisfying and richly crafted as a novel.
