MUNRO, Alice

Too much happiness / Alice Munro

[New York] : Vintage, 2009

Abstract: Ten superb new stories by one of our most beloved and admired writers—the winner of the 2009 Man Booker International Prize. With clarity and ease, Alice Munro once again renders complex, difficult events and emotions into stories about the unpredictable ways in which men and women accommodate and often transcend what happens in their lives. In the first story a young wife and mother, suffering from the unbearable pain of losing her three children, gains solace from a most surprising source. In another, a young woman, in the aftermath of an unusual and humiliating seduction, reacts in a clever if less-than-admirable fashion. Other tales uncover the “deep-holes” in a marriage, the unsuspected cruelty of children, and, in the long title story, the yearnings of a nineteenth-century female mathematician.

Exploradores del abismo / Enrique Vila-Matas

Barcelona : Anagrama, 2009

Abstract: Historias cruzadas por la enigmática y sinuosa silueta de un equilibrista, cuyo recorrido va trazando el inestable y a la vez consistente hilo que liga el conjunto de relatos que componen este regreso de Enrique Vila-Matas a la narrativa breve, pero también al libro inclasificable, tan alejado de la novela convencional como del típico conjunto -siempre tan sospechoso- de cuentos cerrados y correctos.

Krzizanovskij, Sigizmund Dominikovic

Memories of the future / Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky ; translated by Joanne Turnbull with Nikolai Formozov

New York : New York Review Books, c2009

Abstract: Written in Soviet Moscow in the 1920s--but considered too subversive even to show to a publisher--the seven tales included here attest to Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky's boundless imagination, black humor, and breathtaking irony: a man loses his way in the vast black waste of his own small room; the Eiffel Tower runs amok; a kind soul dreams of selling "everything you need for suicide"; an absentminded passenger boards the wrong train, winding up in a place where night is day, nightmares are the reality, and the backs of all facts have been broken; a man out looking for work comes across a line for logic but doesn't join it as there's no guarantee the logic will last; a sociable corpse misses his own funeral; an inventor gets a glimpse of the far-from-radiant communist future

Stevenson, Robert Louis

The suicide Club : followed by The bottle imp / Robert Louis Stevenson

Milan : Modern publishing, c2009

Modern classics ; 5

Abstract: "II Club dei suicidi" è un racconto composto di altri racconti, come del resto l'intera opera Le nuove Mille e una notte (The New Arabian Nights), pubblicata fra il 1881 e il 1882, di cui costituisce una parte considerevole. protagonisti principali della storia, il principe Florizel e il colonnello Geraldine, guidano il lettore attraverso vicende appassionanti e inconsuete, tra fuorilegge in cerca della morte e personaggi innocenti tirati a forza in situazioni spiacevoli, tra single desiderosi di avventure e individui senza scrupoli.
