Well, as it is quite the compilation of various pieces of writing Mr. Irving has written over the years, I feel like some of it is a little hit or miss. I found 'The Imaginary Girlfriend' interesting. There is something I almost always enjoy about reading authors I love write about writing. However, the piece that stuck with me most was the one he wrote about Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol.' It really made me think about a story I have loved since I was a little kid, and prompted me to go back and read the original, something I now find myself doing frequently during the holiday season since then.
