This book hovers between three and four stars for me. I started reading it on a plane and then stopped because it seemed to be all about men who disappoint women and women who disappoint themselves. My mom told me to go back and finish it because there are some good stories in there, particularly about a dog, so I did. I enjoyed the stories near the back better than the ones in front, but I'm still a little bit relieved it's over. The sharpness of her writing, the clarity of her images, and the immediacy of her descriptions are all wonderful, but the stories tended to run together. My favorite was "Jackson Is Only One of My Dogs," which I felt was the most insightful, thought-provoking story in the whole book.
