I selected this book because of some of the authors (TC Boyle, John Irving), but it was wholly depressing. A whole big ol' book about the myriad ways to cheat on your partner. A tough read.

Any collection of stories has the good and the bad. By and large I found this collection to be mediocre. A few hightlights being Spats (heartbreaking) and Hairball (creepy)

Very mixed reaction to this book - it's well curated, but the overall impression is one of regret. It's fairly depressing.

There is a story in this book called "Dick York" by Max Garland. I can't find many of his short stories.
