Great stories. Having just read Faulkner, it took me a few stories to get into Williams' stripped-down style. The person who recommended this to me said "Make sure you read every story ever by Joy Williams," and the back of the book boasts praise from like likes of Carver, Salter, Ann Beattie, etc., so I persevered. Great stuff. Emotionally wrought, complex narratives told through simple, straightforward prose. Several of the stories are really top-notch. Recommended.
