Overview

Alice Munro evoca el poder devastador de los viejos amores que resucitan en este conjunto de relatos, que le valieron a la autora el W.H Smith Award y que el New York Times eligió como uno de los mejores libros de su año. Por aquí transitan una joven desaparecida sin rastro, una novia por contrato, una solitaria excéntrica que, sin proponérselo, consigue un pretendiente millonario, y una mujer que quiere escapar del marido y también del amante. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION In these eight tales, Munro evokes the devastating power of old love suddenly recollected. She tells of vanished schoolgirls and indentured frontier brides and an eccentric recluse who, in the course of one surpassingly odd dinner party, inadvertently lands herself a wealthy suitor from exotic Australia. And Munro shows us how one woman's romantic tale of capture and escape in the high Balkans may end up inspiring another woman who is fleeing a husband and lover in present-day Canada
