    Jozefus: De vergelijking is vaker gemaakt. Beide boeken bestaan uit losse verhalen over een protagonist(e) die opgroeit in een fictief provinciestadje. En in beide gevallen vertoont dat stadje een opvallende gelijkenis met de plaats waar de auteur zelf is opgegroeid.

    A Mixture of Frailties von Robertson Davies (betterthanchocolate)

Pubblicato per la prima volta in Canada nel 1971, rappresenta l'unico scritto in forma di romanzo tra le centinaia di racconti della Munro.
Del Jordan è la protagonista, di cui seguiamo la crescita dall'infanzia fino alla giovinezza negli anni quaranta. Narrata in prima persona, la storia di Del è senza dubbio la storia di cambiamenti, consapevolezza, esperienza, confronti con la figura materna. Ma c'è soprattutto la corporeità: il proprio corpo che si trasforma, che scopre la sessualità, il corpo delle volpi che il padre uccide per ricavarne pelli.
Scrittura geniale come sempre. ( )

An absurd publication, this Vintage edition - page numbers are centred top of recto pages, with none at all on verso pages. ( )

A goodreads statistic. Exactly one of my friends on that site has made a comment about this book - and she hasn't read it yet.

Alice Munro is a Nobel Prize winner.

She is no Chekhov.

Despite that, I think her books will stand the test of time, but they are not easy things to review. There is nothing to pillory. There is no technique to make her temporarily modern. I don't spot anything in her style that will prematurely date her, in the way I feel Welty's does to hers. And she has that sameness about her, in style, in ambition, in content, in method, which means to review one book is to judge them all.

Nonetheless, one could argue this book, Lives of Girls and Women, does - just - the teensiest bit break the mould. Which is because although one could quibble about calling it Munro's 'novel', as there is little to distinguish it from some of her collections of stories - a chapter title instead of a story title, to be sure - it does have a cohesiveness that elevates it. One can imagine that Munro worked so very hard on this that she said never again. However much of a slog short stories might be, this must have been on another level again.

This absolutely captures the loneliness of being a rebellious independent thinking youngster in an unsympathetic environment. Specifically one growing up in poverty in the Canadian rural backblocks. Specifically one assumes a good deal of Alice Munro to be found in it. But the awkward bright girl trying to survive the best she can resonates with anybody, I imagine, who hasn't been Naomi, her some-time friend who abandons her for the allure of baby showers and the other trappings enforced (if by themselves) on females.

Rest here:

Geweldige dialogen, psychologische finesse, intensiteit, filosofische diepgang: het zijn de superieure ingrediënten van deze bijzondere collectie.
hinzugefügt von Jozefus | bearbeitenDe Standaard, Kathy Mathys (Jul 11, 2014)
 
.Munro's women...often find themselves caught on the margins of shifting cultural mores and pulled between conflicting imperatives--between rootedness and escape, domesticity and freedom, between tending to familial responsibilities or following the urgent promptings of their own hearts.

A very likable book -- a very real book -- virtues not to be underestimated or overlooked.
