Mostly disgraceful. The few hauled into coherence by good editors—those appearing in Harper's or The New Yorker, mainly—were good, but most were sketchy, shallow, poorly realized: stale dust swept from the sunless corners of an uninventive and barely furnished mind.

When the book club section of a story collection is better written (and even more impersonal) than the fiction itself, beware. Luckily, this book was a gift. Otherwise, I would have wanted my money back.
