9780307390349: Too Much Happiness
From the Publisher:

Ten superb new stories by one of our most beloved and admired writers--the winner of the 2009 Man Booker International Prize. In the first story a young wife and mother receives release from the unbearable pain of losing her three children from a most surprising source. In another, a young woman, in the aftermath of an unusual and humiliating seduction, reacts in a clever if less-than-admirable fashion. Other stories uncover the deep-holes in a marriage, the unsuspected cruelty of children, and how a boy's disfigured face provides both the good things in his life and the bad. And in the long title story, we accompany Sophia Kovalevsky--a late-nineteenth-century Russian emigre and mathematician--on a winter journey that takes her from the Riviera, where she visits her lover, to Paris, Germany, and, Denmark, where she has a fateful meeting with a local doctor, and finally to Sweden, where she teaches at the only university in Europe willing to employ a female mathematician. With clarity and ease, Alice Munro once again renders complex, difficult events and emotions into stories that shed light on the unpredictable ways in which men and women accommodate and often transcend what happens in their lives. Too Much Happiness is a compelling, provocative--even daring--collection. From the Hardcover edition.

Descripción Vintage, 2010. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Filled with subtle and far-reaching thematic reverberations. . . . [Munro has] an empathy so pitch-perfect. . . . You [are] drawn deftly into another world." -- The New York Times Book Review "Profound and beautiful." --Francine Prose, O, The Oprah Magazine "Alice Munro has done it again. . . . [She] keeps getting better. . . . Her brush strokes are fine, her vision encompasses humanity from its most generous to its most corrupt, and the effect is nothing short of masterful." -- The San Francisco Chronicle "Richly detailed and dense with psychological observation. . . . Munro exhibit[s] a remarkable gift for transforming the seemingly artless into art . . . [She] concentrate[s] upon provincial, even backcountry lives, in tales of domestic tragicomedy that seem to open up, as if by magic, into wider, deeper, vaster dimensions." --Joyce Carol Oates, New York Review of Books "A perfect 10. . . . With this collection of surprising short stories, Munro once again displays the fertility of her imagination and her craftsmanship as a writer." -- USA Today "Masterly. . . . [A] remarkable new book." -- The Los Angeles Times "Daring and unpredictable. . . . Reading Munro is an intensely personal experience. Her focus is so clear and her style so precise. . . . Each [story is] dramatically and subtly different." -- The Miami Herald "A brand-new collection of short stories from Alice Munro--winner of a Man Booker Prize--is always cause for celebration, and Too Much Happiness doesn''t disappoint. It dazzles. The 10 spare, lovely tales are . . . brimming with emotion and memorable characters. . . . Munro''s are stories that linger long after you turn the last page." -- Entertainment Weekly , Grade A "Finely, even ingeniously, crafted. . . . Deliver[ed] with instinctive acuity." -- The Seattle Times "Rich. . . . Truthful, in the deepest sense of the word. . . . Reading an Alice Munro short story is like sinking into a reverie. She expertly captures the shadings and byways of associative thought. . . . [Munro] will surely be remembered as the writer who took the short story to the depth of what short fiction can plumb." -- The Kansas City Star , Best 100 Books of 2009 "Rich and satisfying. . . . A commanding collection and one of her strongest. . . . Short fiction of this caliber should be on everyone''s reading list. Munro''s stories are accessib she simply writes about life. . . . Honest, intuitive storytelling that gives the short story a good name." -- Chicago Sun-Times "There''s never too much happiness in a Munro collection, just sentence after sentence to die for." -- Louisville Courier-Journal "[Munro is] universally acknowledged as one of the greatest short-story writers of our time. . . . [Her] work [is] at such a high level. . . . These stories are extraordinary, ample with the shrewdness and empathy that we have come to take for granted in Munro. . . . Her most distinguishing characteristic as a writer is . . . her extraordinary intimacy with her characters." -- The New Republic "Coherent and compelling. . . . Munro manages to turn the sentimental into the existential." -- The Philadelphia Inquirer "Stunning. . . . An unexpected gift. . . . Here we have 10 perfectly honed pieces, each a study of the human psyche in hard-to-imagine circumstances that Munro presents, seemingly effortlessly, in an economy of words and sentences." -- The Buffalo News "As always in her distinctive stories, Alice Murno''s style is vivid, her attention tireless, her curiosity omnivorous, and her sentences drawn from the freshest of springs." -- The Washington Post "If there''s a better short story writer working today than Alice Munro, I haven''t read her. In story after story, Munro manages to compress whole lives and emotional arcs into 20 or so shapely pages, long enough to engage us in their world but short enough to absorb in a single sitting or commute. Her prose is spare wi. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0307390349
