Sobre este título:

Sinopsis: The luminous novella and stories in The Age of Grief explore the vicissitudes of love, friendship, and marriage with all the compassion and insight that have come to be expected from Jane Smiley, the Pulitzer Prize?winning author of A Thousand Acres .

In ?The Pleasure of Her Company,? a lonely, single woman befriends the married couple next door, hoping to learn the secret of their happiness. In ?Long Distance,? a man finds himself relieved of the obligation to continue an affair that is no longer compelling to him, only to be waylaid by the guilt he feels at his easy escape. And in the incandescently wise and moving title novella, a dentist, aware that his wife has fallen in love with someone else, must comfort her when she is spurned, while maintaining the secret of his own complicated sorrow. Beautifully written, with a wry intelligence and a lively comic touch, The Age of Grief captures moments of great intimacy with grace, clarity, and indelible emotional power.

Sinopsis: "This is a book that will last and last."
THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
Here is a stunning collection of five stories and a novella, written in Jane Smiley's clear and elegant prose, and filled with the unmistakable sound of real people going about the business--and pleasure--of real life. In the title novella, "THE AGE OF GRIEF," a man meditates on the vagaries of love and family life. Certain that his wife has fallen in love with someone else--and been spurned by him--he tries to recover what he calls "the ironic middle," the good-humored, matter-of-fact heart of the marriage where he can keep her from knowing of his own sorrow.
