Editorial Reviews

Review

"I applaud the spirit of the book. Boyle (a writer for whom I have a great deal of respect) obviously loves fiction and wants to share his enthusiasm for it with students."

"I like the fact that there isn't a lot of teaching apparatus. That's a definite plus."

Format: Paperback
This is a terrific anthology. It is part of the required reading for the MFA program I am participating in and I love it. T.C. Boyle is an author I enjoy to begin with, but I like that he has included multiple stories by each author to give you an ideal of both range and what can happen in revision. I would recommend this to a friend, someone just becomming aquainted to the short story format, and definitely to other writing students.

This was a wonderful read of short stories for a fiction course I took. The stories are great, and it's certainly a book to keep.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book if you love short stories and are just starting to read some of the better known writers. Unlike every other anthology it provides two stories by the same author so you can get more of a sense of the style of the author which really adds something. I'd buy it again.

There were several stories in this anthology that I greatly enjoyed. Boyle is a very interesting writer also and many of the stories in this book inspired me greatly to write different fiction stories.

This was a required text for my creative writing class last semester. I bought it on amazon for half the price of the bookstore on campus. I actually enjoyed this book quite a bit. This is a great collection of short stories and very helpful to show different styles and techniques for the budding writer. If you need this for a class, buy it, keep it and love it. If you want it just because, it is most definitely worth it.
