Demasiada felicidad
by Alice Munro
(*)(*)(*)(*)( )(933)
Una joven madre recibe consuelo inesperado por la muerte de sus tres hijos, otra reacciona de forma insólita ante la
humillación a la que la somete un hombre; otros cuentos describen la crueldad de los niños y los huecos de soledad que se crean en el día a día de la vida de pareja. Y el último cuento trata de Sophia Kovalevsky, una matemática rusa que vivió a finales del siglo XIX, en su largo peregrinaje en busca de una universidad que admitiera a mujeres como profesoras.
Anécdotas en apariencia banales se transforman en las manos de Munro en emociones, y su estilo transporta estas emociones sin dificultad, gracias a un talento excepcional que arrastra al lector dentro de las historias casi sin preámbulos.

It seems so ridiculous to me, that a person should be expected to lock themselves into a suit of clothes. I mean like the suit of clothes of an engineer or a doctor or a geologist and then the skin grows over it, over the clothes, I mean, and then that person can't ever get them off. When we are given a chance to explore the whole world of inner and outer reality and to live in a way that takes in the spiritual and the physical and the whole range of the beautiful and the terrible available to mankind, that is pain as well as joy and turmoil.
