Présentation de l'éditeur


Alice Munro, who received the National Book Critics Circle Award for her latest collection of stories, The Love of a Good Woman, is widely acknowledged as a modern master of the short story. In this earlier collection, she demonstrates all of those strengths that have won her so many literary accolades.

A divorced woman returns to her childhood home where she confronts the memory of her parents' confounding yet deep bond. The accidental near-drowning of a child exposes the fragility of the trust between children and parents. A young man, remembering a terrifying childhood incident, wrestles with the responsibility he has always felt for his younger brother. In these and other stories Alice Munro proves once again a sensitive and compassionate chronicler of our times. Drawing us into the most intimate corners of ordinary lives, she reveals much about ourselves, our choices, and our experiences of love.

Chaque nouvelle est un ravissement. J'espère que l'obtention du Prix Nobel va permettre à de nombreux lecteurs de découvrir Alice Munro. Quelle maitrise de l'écriture!

Injured people, small lights of happiness. 2 septembre 1996
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Alice Munro is such a fine writer that she can take some
fifty-odd characters over the course of a story collection and
make them seem like various aspects of a complex and
sensitive personality. These stories are careful and elegant,
and writers will note Munro's idiosyncratically beautiful use
of unexpected adjectives. But even without such wonderful
writing, her stories would speak for themselves: her characters
live life directly, simply, and often painfully, and they have
more feeling than they can express. Munro does it for them. This collection includes
"The Moon in the Orange Street Skating Rink," one of the
most moving stories I can imagine. Read it and weep.

Very solid introduction 31 août 2001
Par Philip Huang - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Mid-period Munro, when she began in earnest to explore a talent for expansiveness. The title story is as fine as anything she's written. The final pages reap deliciously what the story's juxtaposed timelines and plots have set up. You walk away from the story shaking your head, sighing, aching. Not as fine a collection as The Moons of Jupiter, also out of the same period in her career, but still hard to beat by another writer in the medium. It seems short stories have waited for Munro for too long, and we are too privileged to be readers in her lifetime.

Genius 17 mai 2001
Par Mike Vachow - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Alice Munro is, by my reckoning, the greatest short story writer of our time. Her collection, The Progress of Love, is ample proof. I recommend her work with trepidation to aspiring short story writers because her writing is intimidatingly exquisite. Charles Baxter or Lorrie Moore could profit from a session in the batting cage with Munro, but for most everybody else, it would be like taking your Tee-Ball Leaguer for a hitting tutorial with Ted Williams.
What's so good about Munro's writing? Foremost is her precision. The center of the short story writer's craft is economy. It's very difficult to find a word that doesn't advance both story and theme in Munro's work. The reader finds himself stopping to ponder passages not because they're opaque but because they are so powerfully rendered and so intricately woven. I've taught "Monsieur Les Deux Chapeaux" for seven years, and Ross's moment on the bridge never fails to transport me and my students. I don't expect to find an end to my thought about this moment or the story itself. It will unquestionably remain a short story by which I measure all others.

Haunting 24 septembre 2009
Par Richard Pittman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This was my first Alice Munro collection and I will read more. I liked the collection but perhaps Alice hasn't spun her magic on me quite like she has on others. In this collection she writes about very typical lives and slightly atypical events. Most of the stories don't really have a beginning and an end but are rather slices of lives. Munro gives strong insight into people's inner lives and thoughts.

Each story is well crafted and Munro's style is very straight forward. Most stories take place in rural Ontario with a little bit of Toronto thrown in.

I titled the review "haunting" because I came away feeling that I'd been spying on the inner thoughts of others in a portion of their every day lives.

I was particularly touched by Monsieur Les Deux Chapeaux which told the the stories of twin brothers. One is a typical man and the other is somewhat mentally challenged. Their relationship is both interesting and touching.

There are other great stories as well. I honestly needed to take a break from the book at one point and return to it after a couple of days.

Munro is an excellent writer but in totality I'm not sure if she's my cup of tea. I'll need to read more.
Love and Our Progress Toward and Away From It 31 mai 2009
Par Bonnie Brody - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book of short stories is by a polished and superb writer. All the innuendoes and narrative flow smoothly and truthfully from her. her language never feels awkward. The New York Times Sunday Book Review considered this one of the best books of 1986. All of the stories deal with family and love - - its progress towards and away from it.

Some stories of note:

"Progress of Love" - - This is about a family reunion and the family history recounted there. There is one especially tormenting scene of a young girl witnessing her mother's attempted suicide in order to get at her philandering husband. This young girl, now a woman, has harbored so much hatred towards her father over the years that she burns the $3000 inheritance he leaves her.

"Monsieur Les Deut Chapeaux" - - Colin and Ross are brothers. Ross is mildly developmentally disabled. Colin has flashbacks wherein he remembers a time when he shot Ross. He truly did not shoot Ross, but Ross played a practical joke on Colin. Because of this, Colin sees his life's work as assuring that Ross is not ever hurt.

"Fits" -- A Woman, delivering some eggs to her neighbors, discovers a suicide/murder. How she reacts to it and how her husband reacts to her reaction make up this story. She is extremely low key and this is juxtaposed with the town's horror at the crime and the gruesomeness of it.

"A Queer Streak" - - This is one of my favorite stories. A young woman gives up her life's ambitions in a martyred attempt to take care of her family. Meanwhile, her sister has written threatening, perverse letters to their father and pretends that they are coming from a potential murderer.

All in all, there are always some gems in Alice Munro's collections.
