This review is from: Too Much Happiness: Stories (Hardcover)
The author's credentials are well known, but that doesn't necessarily translate into an enjoyable reading experience. The problem here is the overemphasis on "atmospherics" at the expense of "plot". Although some of the stories in this collection are extremely well done, an equal number seem pointless--perhaps meant to be admired for their literary pedigree alone? As a result, this is a "slow going" text that requires a substantial expenditure of time with only intermittent rewards.
