The incomparable Alice Munro’s bestselling and rapturously acclaimed Runaway is a book of extraordinary stories about love and its infinite betrayals and surprises, from the title story about a young woman who, though she thinks she wants to, is incapable of leaving her husband, to three stories about a woman named Juliet and the emotions that complicate the luster of her intimate relationships. In Munro’s hands, the people she writes about–women of all ages and circumstances, and their friends, lovers, parents, and children–become as vivid as our own neighbors. It is her miraculous gift to make these stories as real and unforgettable as our own.

Na een aantal verhalen met hetzelfde thema geloof ik het wel.Wel heel verfrissend dat ze schrijft zoals het meestal gaat, na...

4.0 Runaway
I decided to read this book based on a recommendation in Jonathan Franzen's book Farther Away. Not only will I be reading other recommendations by Franzen, I'll be reading more of Alice Munro as well.I find Munro's writing style pleasing. Concise and to the point, while still being descriptive, no...

3.0 Uciekinierka
Opowiadania. Dobre, ale jak dla mnie nie „noblowskie” jak zapowiada okładka. O kobietach, w różnych, często zaskakujących je same sytuacjach. Dobrze skonstruowane psychologicznie ale jak na dobrą literaturę niektóre za bardzo przewidywalne. Od początku wiadomo „czym się to skończy”. Postacie mężczyz...
