Lorrie Moore's writing is quick & fresh & very original. When she writes about Benna teaching her poetry class, it feels like it could be the best class on the planet. I did tire a little of the wordplay, and the last 30 pages felt like she punched me in the face and stole my wallet. (You keep waiting, waiting for her characters to resolve their problems but they're just broken, sad things.)
Her use of language and timing is impeccable.
