Dietro ad esistenze semplici, magari comuni, forse felici e serene, si nascondono inquietudini, solitudini e disastri intimi
Alice Munro, always the best speculator of humanity, of what make you human, with all contradiction and painful little betrayals. The 'Runaway' eponym story is absolute perfection, and the others are pretty close.
Carver-Chekhov-Munro. In my opinion nobody writes short stories like them. When are they going to give this lady the Nobel? Just because she comes from Canada and not from a troubled country doesn't mean she doesn't deserve it!
I really don't like Munro's description of women as really weak, sad, unlucky beings.
I'm not feminist but this is way toooo pessimistic for me!
