it was amazing

Sweet Mary, did John Updike do a smashing job with this collection! Sure, I quibble at what is missing: Sonny's Blues, People Like That Are the Only People Here, Brokeback Mountain, Are These Actual Miles? But what is here is so very rich. Annie Proulx, Lorrie Moore, Donald Barthelmay, Joyce Carol Oates, and even Updike himself. Must buy.
