Každá povídka Alice Munroové je jako rozlehlé sídlo s mnoha místnostmi. A každý pokoj tohoto sídla je dokonale zařízený nábytkem a prodchnutý osobností tamních obyvatel.
The only novel from bestselling author Alice Munro, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature Catching frogs, grazing knees, singing songs to save England from Hitler - that was childhood for Del Jordan, and now she's impatient for more. More than she can find in the encyclopedias sold by her mother, or in the half-understood innuendos dispensed by best friend Naomi, or in the whispers of boys during Friday night dances.
With passions hopelessly conceived, affections betrayed, marriages made and broken, this title includes stories in which the joys, fears, loves and awakenings of women echo throughout, laying bare the unexceptional and yet inescapable pain of human contact. The characters who populate an Alice Munro story live and breathe.
These dazzling and utterly satisfying stories explore varieties and degrees of love - filial, platonic, sexual, parental and imagined - in the lives of apparently ordinary folk. In fact, Munro's characters pulse with idiosyncratic life.
A woman haunted by dreams of her dead mother. An adulterous couple stepping over the line where the initial excitement ends and the pain begins.
Brilliantly paced, lit with sparks of danger and underlying menace, these are dazzling, provocative stories about Svengali men, and radical women who outmanoeuvre them, about destructive marriages and curdled friendships, about mothers and sons, about moments which change or haunt a life. Alice Munro takes on complex, even harrowing emotions and events, and renders them into stories that surprise, amaze and shed light on the unpredictable ways we accommodate to what happens in our lives.
The first ever selection of her stories, from her earliest published work in 1968 to her latest in 1994. Her star is in the ascendant -winner of the 1994 W. H. Smith Award, shortlisted for the second time in 1995 for the Irish Times International Fiction Award.
In these stories whose lives come into focus through single events or sudden memories which bring the past bubbling to the surface. The past, as her characters discover, is made up not only of what is remembered, but also what isn't.
