Amy Bloom is one of my favorite short story authors - I prefer her short stories and was not a fan of her novel, "Away." I was particularly excited for this new collection of stories. The excitement was slightly lessened when I started reading, only to discover that four of the stories had previously been published in previous collections of Ms. Bloom's. Bummer. Had I purchased this instead of getting it from the library, I'd have been pretty annoyed.

That said, the series of stories about William and Clare was amazing. Wrenching, heartfelt, and set me sobbing by the end of the series. I love her characters, her writing, her stories, and this series highlights her strengths.

And even the stories I'd read before were completely worth re-reading and re-visiting. Highly recommended, four stars for the content, three due to the packaging.
