  • "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."

  • "Eleven stories reveal the nature of power of love between children and parents, between siblings, and between estranged lovers."
  • ""Los relatos de Alice Munro son como pequeñas novelas, pedazos de vida tejidos con maestría, a la manera de una Flannery O'Connor canadiense que hubiese crecido en una cabaña congelada repleta de niños que, de repente, se han convertido en adultos y eso no les gusta. Algo así es "The Progress of Love", uno de sus cuentos más representativos. La genial Margaret Atwood, que comparte con Munro nacionalidad, referentes y estilo narrativo, narra en "Death by Landscape" la historia de Lois, una mujer de mediana edad que trata de encontrar algo que perdió en el campamento Manitou, donde pasó los veranos de su infancia."--Editor."@en
