Some of these stories were quite amusing; others not so much. I wouldn't call them literature or compare them to, say, David Sedaris, but still worth the time if you're looking for a laugh or two.

Ponderous is the word that comes to mind. There were some beautiful passages though, with outstanding writing. That was enough to keep me going until the end. I kept waiting for the plot to kick in. It never did.
