Overview

Se podría concebir El progreso del amor como unas crónicas de nuestro tiempo que, con gran sensibilidad y empatía, nos descubren los aspectos más intrínsecos de la vida cotidiana; toda una revelación de nosotros mismos -los lectores-, nuestras elecciones y nuestras experiencias. En su conjunto, son un tratado del amor, formado por historias íntimas y deslumbrantes que exploran sus distintas facetas -filial, platónico, sexual, parental e imaginario- en las vidas de personajes aparentemente ordinarios. Munro nos habla sobre cómo puede engañarnos la memoria y cómo nuestra percepción puede llegar a distorsionar la realidad. De esta forma empieza a entretejer los once relatos sobre el amor, la memoria y la vida que constituyen este volumen.

«Sus personajes son sencillos y es dueña de las mayores sutilezas del alma humana. Historias que acaban siendo grandes tragedias. Es una escritora adictiva.»

Ignacio Martínez de Pisón ENGLISH DESCRIPTION A divorced woman returns to her childhood home where she confronts the memory of her parents' confounding yet deep bond. The accidental near-drowning of a child exposes the fragility of the trust between children and parents. A young man, remembering a terrifying childhood incident, wrestles with the responsibility he has always felt for his younger brother. In these and other stories Alice Munro proves once again a sensitive and compassionate chronicler of our times. Drawing us into the most intimate corners of ordinary lives, she reveals much about ourselves, our choices, and our experiences of love.
