    One thought on “Las lunas de Júpiter”

    1. Updated May 2016Alice Munro, around the time that The Moons Of Jupiter was published***The Moons Of Jupiter is Munro's fifth book, and I think it marked a turning point in her writing. A few stories ("Mrs. Cross And Mrs. Kidd," "Visitors") feel anachronistic, well-written and polished tales that could have been part of her first collection, Dance Of The Happy Shades. Others, like "Bardon Bus" and "Hard-Luck Stories," are cool, playful experiments – they're like literary puzzles – that don't [...]

    2. Primer libro que leo de Alice Munro, y me gustó bastante, aunque esperaba más En sus historias, todas breves, se destacan mujeres fuertes y decididas, seguras de sí mismas pero agobiadas por conflictos tanto internos como externos, todo esto sin dejar de mostrar las vulnerabilidades inherentes al ser humano. Estos diez relatos —en apariencia simples, llanos y monótonos— desarrollan tramas generalmente domésticas y que resaltan las relaciones interpersonales entre sus personajes. Porque [...]

    3. The quiet desperation of a separated middle-aged woman tending to her father at the hospital before a life-threatening operation is subtly disguised as she ruminates about her own relationship with her two daughters.The micro cosmos of everyday life with all its trifling happenings is put in contrast with the immensity of outer space when she attends a show at the planetarium waiting for the results of her father's pre-surgery tests, but weirdly enough, it's the far away planets that bring fathe [...]

    4. Let the record show, as it does, that I started reading this collection back in the beginning of February 2015. Let it also show that I barely managed to finish it in time to tuck it into my 2015 reading list. This is how I read Alice Munro, because I suspect that this is the only way my brain and heart can heal itself after most of her stories.I recall when Munro won her Nobel Prize that many people wondered why she deserved it. There is nothing exceptional about her writing, except that it is [...]

    5. Alice Munro is such an artist. I simply loved Too Much Happiness and definitely wanted to read more of her work. This is one of her earlier collections published in 1982 and though I didn’t find it as good, there are still plenty of little jewels I thoroughly enjoyed.What Munro does so well is everyday interactions, these beautiful everyday moments we tend to ignore because we think they have no meaning, but they say so much about who we are.There are also more defining moments in this collect [...]

    6. Rivisitare il passatoNei racconti di Alice Munro io entro mentre leggo i primi righi. Non ho quasi bisogno di guardarmi intorno, conosco gli ambienti semplici, spesso rurali, nei quali vivono le sue donne, le case di legno della provincia canadese, l’attitudine a fare il più col meno, la mentalità protestante e presbiteriana. Mi piace la semplicità con la quale i suoi personaggi si raccontano, racconti che sono più riflessione su fatti già avvenuti che narrazione in tempo reale. Gli argom [...]

    7. Munro's stories are a delight to read, and this collection is no exception. For me, she is one of the hardest writers to read as a writer. I mean, her technique is so seamless that it can be very hard to pick it apart to learn from. For example, when she shifts in "Chaddeleys and Flemmings"between the narrator's perspective as a child and the narrator's perspective as an adult it is almost unnoticeable. The shift is there, and for good reason, but Munro's technique sits in the background working [...]

    9. Aunque Las lunas de Júpiter no es el libro más reciente de Munro y refleja, según parece, una etapa de su obra que la autora canadiense ya superó, muestra un talento y una atención al detalle enormes. Todos los personajes de los cuentos están perfectamente bien construidos y resultan interesantes incluso en las narraciones más flojas. La construcción de sus cuentos parece calculada y bien trabajada. Excelente autora, bien merecedora a mi parecer de los galardones que se le han otorgado. [...]

    10. Okay well, the fact is I have read everything by Alice Munro, some more than once, and I love most of it. But this book is one of my favorites for some reason It feels like a transitional book among her stories - stories of the woman leaving her family, the lone-ness of striking out on her own, portraits of relationships in those key decisive moments of continuing but knowing the ending is near. I love the two-part story that opens this book "Chaddeleys and Flemings" and how she disparately conn [...]

    11. When I constrain myself to sit and describe a collection of stories from Alice Munro I find myself unusually timid; they have the abundance and detail of longer fiction, so every book is like a family of novels or a garden of ornamented individuals. Their roots may have a reach that is tenuous or significant, they may be fragile seedlings or hardy adults or have died in the winter; regardless, they all have in common the parent soil. If the ground has been previously trodden then Munro is the fi [...]

    12. Terminado, ¡Por fin! Tres años me ha costado leerlo, precisamente porque no me estaba gustando, claro.Si no me equivoco, de las doce historias sólo me han "gustado" 3, y esas tres, sin entusiasmo, vamos, un simple "no está mal".Todas las historias tienen en común tener como protagonistas a mujeres que se encuentran "al borde del abismo" pero que conservan un rayito de esperanza. Pero la verdad, a mí me han dejado fría.Posiblemente algún día le daré otra oportunidad a esta escritora gan [...]

    13. After Munro was announced as the Nobel Prize laureate, I excitedly went about obtaining a number of her books. I got her newest book and a collection of her best stories, but someone somewhere online suggested that this, The Moons of Jupiter, was her personal favorite. So, on that suggestion, I started with this book.The opening stories were surprisingly brilliant, and Munro's ability to share momentous insights within a sentence or two continually impressed me. To read Munro is to see her chara [...]

    14. من النادر جدا أن تقول عن كاتبة أنها تمثلك كرجل. أليس مونرو العظيمة الأولى التي أقابلها وأجدها تخطت أنوثتها إلى إنسانيتها وكتبت عن الناس فقط بصوت المرأة. قرأت من قبل لكاتبات هيرتا موللر على سبيل المثال ولم أقدر على إتمام الكتاب، طبعا مستغانمي ﻻ نقاش حولها، وهناك أخرى لا أذكر [...]

    15. 22 February 2015I have just reread this collection of stories. When I read this 3 years ago, it stood out as my favorite to date. I am not certain that I can any longer claim a favorite Alice collection because each one as I read it is my favorite. Surely her writing improves, and she writes with greater confidence. This collection is indeed superb -- it is hard to find complaint with any of these stories. The characters are so real, and flawed, and complex. The majority of these stories were wr [...]

    16. The first few stories in this collection were incredible: moving and vivid, just as I expect from this master of short stories. However, most of the other stories were forgettable. The title story, Moons of Jupiter, was about an author coming to grips with her father’s heart valve transplant, 2 grown children who have gone their own, secretive ways, and her own interests in writing and fashion. This was Alice Munro at her typical and her best, taking the reader inside the life of someone who i [...]

    17. Many times, I will dip into a short story collection, read a few, and set it aside. I read straight through this one. Munro is brilliant at capturing the fleeting emotion; the thoughts percolating under everyday life; the growth, quirks, and fall of relationshipsI am tempted to quote some brilliant lines from the stories, but they are so much better within the stories themselves as you are pulled into the world of whatever characters she is following. A Nobel Prize well-deserved. (Brett Easton E [...]

    18. I love Alice Munro. Her writing is so finely crafted, simple, in a way, that it falls away from the constructions of characters.s, really, that makes them seem like personal memories. She leaves me, not just with a description of an afternoon, but with the smells of the porch, the sounds of birds, the shattering of consciousness after the accident that didn't happen. When I get covetousness over her skill, I realize that what happens in her stories is the way her mind works, it isn't learning ho [...]

    19. Another great collection by Alice Munro. I read this as part of my mission to read all of her books, in the order they were published. What I love about her stories is that there are no huge dramas, no great epiphanies. She is expert at examining women's relationships, women's motives, women's psychology. Now that I have read five of her books, I notice that the women in the stories are getting older, and they are moving further from the woods and small towns of her earlier books. I see her writ [...]

    20. I know Alice Munro is quite celebrated, but this collection of short stories struck me rather as the above-average college essays of an English major more than anything else.First of all, although the short stories in this collection almost invariably build up to something befittingly atmospheric and pregnant, they nearly all give an anticlimactic sort of feel after that. It feels like a novel just about to plunge into the heart of its tale and then being slashed off.Also, although the character [...]

    21. It just struck me that Munro gets to the heart of what I personally think family and relationships end up being about.That didn't sound too impressive but this is my favourite theme, the all-consuming topic of my life for the past few years, in particular. Adulthood to me is the realisation that family in particular is not to be taken for granted, and that age can be a gently wonderful and terrible beast.Munro tackles these so well, story after story which is why she is one of my favourite autho [...]

    22. Tenía muchas ganas de leer algo de esta autora y este volumen de relatos breves me ha gustado mucho. Es impresionante la forma en que Munro hurgar en la mente de sus protagonistas femeninas trasmitiendo un mensaje coherente hasta de las personalidades más extremas. El lenguaje es sencillo y a la vez muy cuidado, creando esa sensación de falsa facilidad que tanto cuesta a los escritores. Respecto a los temas, hay un poco de todo. El hilo conductor suele ser la visión femenina del mundo, mucha [...]

    23. apparentemente nei racconti di alice munro non succede nulla- e invece, pian piano, si svelano i movimento dell'anima dei personaggi descritti e le loro piccole storie diventano quelle di chi legge. grande scrittrice: per la compassione, il dolore e l'umanità che sa raccontare. i migliori: la stagione dei tacchini, le lune di giove, l'incidente, bardon, autobus n. 144, dulse.

    24. I recently went through the archived likes on my tumblr page. Over 2,000 posts that have been sitting online mostly undisturbed for five years or so. About half way through the list (2014, maybe) I saw a quote, "They were all in their early thirties. An age at which it is sometimes hard to admit that what you are living is your life." This is the first collection of stories by Alice Munro I have read. I checked out a hard cover edition from the library of the school I work at and read roughly on [...]

    25. Publicado en lecturaylocura/las-lunas-dUna de las pocas cosas con la que estoy de acuerdo con el polémico Franzen es que recomienda leer a Munro; por una vez y sin que sirva de precedente.Ya hablé bastante de “La vida de las mujeres” y desvelaba algunos de los secretos que utiliza con frecuencia; bueno, en realidad, lo decía ella misma en el increíble epílogo a ese ciclo de relatos cortos estructurado como novela.En esta ocasión tenemos ya el típico libro de relatos ambientados en el [...]

    26. Es curioso que pocas de las numerosas bookblogers "feministas" hagan referencia a Munro. Cuentos donde las mujeres son las protagonistas, las tramas giran alrededor de ellas, con el realismo que Munro nos tiene acostumbrados. Quizás no sea tan apreciada, porque no suele hacer escándalos.

    27. La verdad es que no conocía el trabajo de Alice Munro. Pero aprovechando las re-ediciones que han salido de su trabajo una vez que se anunció que el Nobel de Literatura 2013 sería adjudicado a ella, y de un modo algo auto indulgente, decidí ver que onda. Normalmente le tengo algo de desconfianza a los del consejo que otorga el Nobel, a veces se me figura que son casi como los monos que otorgan el Oscar. Así pues, decidí leerla no con muchas esperanzas ¡Ah, pocas cosas en la vida son tan a [...]
