so fun. i didn't love all of these stories, but so many of them were fantastic. i loved my first look ever at both david foster wallace and tobias wolff. i really enjoyed robert olen butler again, so i think i need to read more of him. same for rick bass and lorrie moore. i'm going to pick up something by thomas beller, whose story i had to immediately reread i liked it so much. and marshall n klimasewiski, oh marshall n klimasewiski, whose story i liked so much i couldn't read anything else for almost a day. he blew me away and almost got this book 5 stars all on his own. this is a really good collection, with a few in there that didn't resonate so much with me. but overall, quite good.
