Una estupenda antología sobre las mujeres. Y su soledad.

Relatos de Cheever, Chéjov, Wilde, Clarice Lispector, Mujica Lainez

Esta excelente antología sobre distintas mujeres; es una maravillosa muestra del genio de varios escritores legendarios como Flaubert y Chejov; así como muchos otros. Es sin duda un imperdible para los que gustan de las selecciones y a veces encuentran resonancia en los selectores.

Interesantes,sin embargo algunas historias tremendamente desoladoras. Los que más me gustaron fueron:
_Una aventura (Sherwood Anderson).
_La buena gente delcampo (Flannery O'Connor)
_El viaje de la profesora Bellini(Pedro mairal)
_En el molino(Jose María Eca de Queiroz)
