Mine is not this edition, but a lovely elderly copy published in 1965, so old it doesn't even have an ISBN! Thanks Bookmooch :)

Verdict: it was OK, and even excellent in places, and must have been ground-breaking at the time, but it didn't blow me away. Nowadays we can read Alice Munro or Elizabeth Strout -- their stories seem more real and moving to me.
