Read from August 12 to 14, 2011 — I own a copy

Like any anthology, the short stories vary in quality, so don’t get discouraged by my average rating, some of them are really good. My sub-rating:

-Robert Harris: PMQ − 5*
-Melissa Bank: The Wonder Spot − 3*
-Giles Smith: Last Requests − 5*
-Patrick Marber: Peter Shelley − 4*
-Colin Firth: The Department of Nothing − 4* (well done, Mr. Darcy!)
-Zadie Smith: I’m the Only One − 2*
-Nick Hornby: NippleJesus − 4*
-Dave Eggers: After I Was Thrown in the River and Before I Drowned − 1* (major disappointment)
-Helen Fielding: Luckybitch − 4*
-Roddy Doyle: The Slave − 2*
-Irvine Welsh: Catholic Guilt (You Know You Love It) − 1* (well, I didn't)
-John O’Farrell: Walking into the Wind − 5* (brilliant)

All in all, it was not so bad.
