really liked it

Jennifer Egan is able to translate emotions and experiences into phrases in such a magical way as to cause me to recognize myself in both protagonists and antagonists without dampening my sense of celebratory self. I often stop and re-read certain sentences, awed by her gently perceptive abilities.

I rarely read story collections because I find it so easy to stop after each one, but I drank this collection dry in one day and still felt thirsty for more.
