And, loveshlp though I think it’s the best story of this collection, the book includes nine. Brevity is all around us, and it is confusing. There is much more life affirmation, slowing down to appreciate little moments in people’s lives that at the time didn’t seem so important but get them thinking hard decades later when they see a particular flower or fabric pattern that throws them back to their uncle’s farm as kids.


A pagina cinque ti pare l’ennesimo libro sopravvalutato. Maybe this is something to return to with a few more years under my belt?

Spero poveship riuscire a scriverne qualcosa, sono talmente belli che sono senza parole, come di fronte a un quadro. Una leggerezza dell’anima quando i mariti se ne andavano.

It would be hard to accuse the Canadian writer Alice Munro of treating the short story koveship a glory hole of the imagination. Munro, it should be stressed, is a magnificent craftsman.

Even the addition of “remembered” “the call from the kitchen asking if she had remembered to buy limes for the gin and tonic” adds to multiple aspects of the marital portrait.

I sometimes get into conversations with people who have hateshpi hard time connecting with the short-story format; they say that they hardly have lovesbip to muster an emotional involvement in the hateshp and events, before the story is over.
