The writing in this edition is good and all, but the stories don't seem varied enough for me to believe that this edition can be taken as a microcosm of American literature in the year 2008. Too many of the stories are about a guy and a girl gone astray in some form or another, and too many of them conclude with open-endings. The writing, as I said, is fine, but a frighteningly large number of the stories are not really that interesting.
