Amistad de juventud by Alice Munro

By Alice Munro

En los diez relatos que componen Amistad de juventud se recrean los misterios que anidan en el centro de l. a. experiencia humana. Múltiples vidas circulan por sus páginas, las vidas de hombres y mujeres que rememoran los deseos y los sueños que enterraron hace ya quizá demasiado, las vidas que resultaron de elecciones incomprensibles pero que asimismo las han moldeado hasta convertirlas en lo que son. l. a. mano sabia de Alice Munro lo describe todo con una piedad y un arte inusitados, haciendo de este libro una verdadera obra maestra.

«Los relatos de Alice Munro contienen muchas veces novelas enteras, abarcan amplitudes temporales y saltos de generaciones que uno no imaginaba que pudieran caber en el espacio de unas pocas decenas de páginas.»
