i love this book. not only because it's a collection of short stories (which i can freely read out of order), but because of the cover.. you know, pencils stuck on the ceiling? reminds me of a certain TV show character. as a matter of fact i think that's why i bought the book (oooh, yeah, i DO judge a book by its cover. so what? everybody else is doing it, too.)

and, um, okay i don't really have time to do a full review today, but i promise i'll get around to it these couple of days :)

meanwhile,

It's a collection of short stories by well regarded literary authors that all take place in one scene, more or less, of course it's going to be good. Not every story's gonna hit it with you (especially some of the older stories that really show their age), but almost anyone would enjoy at least half of these. My personal favorite was Joyce Carol Oates's In the Warehouse, chilling.

This was an excellent collection of short stories. I was introduced to some not so familiar writers and then pleased to find some of my favorite writers. Each story was skillfully constructed and genius. I'd say start with Jorge Luis Borges' 'August 25, 1983 first. You just kind of get into the mood to keep reading after that.

Turns out that short stories are OK, but picking them out specifically because they fell into the "single scene" format doesn't mean that any of them were very good.

A very good collection of classic ("A&P," "Hills Like White Elephants," "To Build a Fire") and lesser known pieces. Nice to nip off a couple each day, feel satisfied.

A great collection, well worth a buy for any reader or writer. A broad and excellent selection of stories.
