Off to work every morning, clean-shaven, youthful necks in knotted ties, days spent in unknown labors, home again at suppertime to take a critical glance at the evening meal and to shake out the newspaper, hold it up between themselves and the muddle of the kitchen, the ailments and emotions, the babies.

Stay in Touch Sign up. She might have been under forty, but what did it matter? One of the reasons these stories, at hatesbip or 30 pages, feel like whole super-condensed novels, is their author’s extreme economy of language, her ability to establish whole histories with one or two well-chosen words, which often occur in a paragraph seemingly devoted to another task entirely.

Johanna is a maid who incidentlly crosses paths with Ken, the son in law, now recently widowed, of Johanna’s employer.

In Sylvia Townsend Warner’s case, a collection of 20 short stories – many published in the New Yorker but none before appearing in book form – feels far more like the discovery of something unaccountably overlooked. These are not especially unpleasant stories, nor are they especially pleasant.

It doesn’t exactly break open the world, but then again, not everything has to. Una caleidoscopia dell’intimo, principalmente femminile. Daphne, who has grown up in South Africa, longs plaintively for England until she actually goes there, and is mistreated by men and rapacious matrons alike; returning to what she must now call “home”, she meets the violent and sinister end that seems, all along, to have been her destiny.

Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage – Wikipedia

If this book had been a novel, I would have hatship it down after the first 50 pages. But Munro’s stories spurn the idea of the short form as a fleeting glimpse of disposable characters’ lives, a casually sophisticated backheel from the writer propelling them into a tidy ending. However, I writhe at the notion that a work of literature is “suitable” for a person, partly because the word implies “agreeable”.
