This collection makes a nice pair with Goon Squad; it shows the promise that the later book makes good on. Many of these stories involve well-to-do characters floundering in exotic locations, though the final one, "Sisters of the Moon," takes place in 1974 San Francisco, among a group of teenagers flirting with drugs and street life, and is the story that most closely resembles the tone of those in Goon Squad.
