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.

She hadn't been just a once-through reader either. Brothers Karamazov, Mill on the Floss, Wings of the Dove, Magic Mountain, over and over again. She would pick one up, thinking that she would just read that special bit - and find herself unable to stop until the whole thing was redigested. She read modern fiction too. Always fiction. She hated to hear the word "escape" used about fiction. She might have argued, not just playfully, that it was real life that was the escape. But this was too important to argue about.

She would have understood, and at that moment, even if he himself was nowhere close to knowing. He was falling in love.
Falling. That suggests some time span, a slipping under. But you can't think of it as a speeding up, a moment or a second when you fall. Now John is not in love with Edie. Tick. Now he is.

Ricordati sempre: quando un uomo esce da una stanza, si lascia alle spalle tutto quel che c'è dentro. Una donna, invece, si porta appresso tutto quel che c'è avvenuto.
