Read in September, 2011

A strong collection. Disch's interest in the visual arts comes through in a number of these short stories, including the title story. In one story a bus load of art critics gets slaughtered. Knowing that he killed himself a few years ago might make one pass over the humor found in many of these stories, but it is a key ingredient. There is a very palpable sense of sadness and loneliness present behind the scenes though.
