THE SHORT STORIES IN THE BOOK ARE EXCELLENT READING. THE DISCUSSIONS ,FOLLOWING EVERY STORY, ARE WORTHWHILE ADDITIONS TO READING THE STORIES. I AM VERUY HAPPY WITH THIS PURCHASE.
You can read this book for the stories alone--which are outstanding; or, you can read the stories and then study the interviews, dissect the stories with editor Paul Mandelbaum, and try to understand more deeply what makes them tick. Either way is well worth the trouble.
If you are a short story lover or aspiring writer, I can recommend this book highly. Reviewed by Louis N. Gruber.
I've read and re-read this book because I get more from it each time. There are a lot of books about writing and collections of stories also but, this book really is the perfect mix of entertainment and informative teaching.
