By Alice Munro
En los diez relatos que componen Amistad de juventud se recrean los misterios que anidan en el centro de l. a. experiencia humana. Múltiples vidas circulan por sus páginas, las vidas de hombres y mujeres que rememoran los deseos y los sueños que enterraron hace ya quizá demasiado, las vidas que resultaron de elecciones incomprensibles pero que asimismo las han moldeado hasta convertirlas en lo que son. l. a. mano sabia de Alice Munro lo describe todo con una piedad y un arte inusitados, haciendo de este libro una verdadera obra maestra.
«Los relatos de Alice Munro contienen muchas veces novelas enteras, abarcan amplitudes temporales y saltos de generaciones que uno no imaginaba que pudieran caber en el espacio de unas pocas decenas de páginas.»

It goes out of fashion and is discarded because it fails to impress. As she waits, she meditates on her relationship with Jason – is she just a possession to be displayed? She looks at her Gucci watch, a present from him, and contemplates how she will dump him. He arrives, ‘cocksure’ and ‘positively sizzling’. If only ‘he wasn’t so disarmingly horny’. No verbal greeting is exchanged but his hand goes up her skirt, discovers she’s wearing knickers and insists she takes them off. ’ In the toilet she touches the small clit ring he gave her, and finds that the piercing is healed and that touching it gives her a shock of pleasure.
If, as I noted earlier, one of the defining power structures of pornography has been the relation of male-as-subject to women-asobject, it seems that in these examples the relation is fractured but 16 MAINSTREAMING SEX by no means broken. Moreover this relation need not necessarily be underpinned by money or any coercive male power. Whether we like it or not, part of the normalization of pornography has involved the increasingly active internalization by women of their status within this dynamic.
This is a ‘game that enables one to place the limits of the fictional and the real under discussion, to make them fluid’ (1985: 49). Searching for ‘messages’ encoded in the text and their ‘decodings’ by readers ignores the complexities of the interactions readers enjoy in all media forms, including pornography. Audience research has shown that readers and viewers are self-conscious about their media practices and the ways in which these are understood (Barker and Brooks, 1998; Barker et al, 2001; Hill, 1997; Smith, 2007).
