This was a pretty good collection of short stories. I know that "The Palace Thief" is probably the most famous of this collection, and though I did like it, my favorite story was "The City of Broken Hearts." I liked the relationships between everyone and the story was very touching. I'm glad I finally read this book. Plus, Ethan Canin is on the University of Iowa Writer's Workshop staff, and since I go to the University of Iowa and am an English major, the book was all the more enjoyable to read. The writing was very good and the story lines were original and well crafted. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
