really liked it
Read from January 01 to February 01, 2011 — I own a copy

Some moments were utterly brilliant and some just made me wonder why writers felt like they should let people read their work. Hillary Mantel's story was wonderful and touching. Several of the stories by Eastern European authors also stood out. They tended to harken back to the days of socialism, which gives them both a surreal and nostalgic sense. I'd recommend only reading the stories that grab you right away; the ones that don't probably won't at all.
