The appearance of these stories in one volume is an event in our literature. To have built up so distinguished a collection, each story excellent in its own way and each an original departure in relation to the others, is a triumph. (Guy Davenport New York Times Book Review )
Miss Stafford's craftsmanship and her mastery of the short story form are by now so well known that it seems superfluous to praise these stories. That they are impeccably done is obvious. (Joyce Carol Oates Book World )
She writes about people whom loneliness has driven slightly mad, but also about people who are secure and comforted; she explores childhood and old age, poverty and wealth, tragedy and comedy. The comedy is usually wry... but often moves one to laughter. Above all, Miss Stafford will not be hurried... To me, this book is most solidly achieved. (John Wain New York Review Of Books )

the list, I read it. The stories vary from really good to what did I just read. The author has an
outstanding vocabulary and uses it. She is a sophisticated writer and that may put the average reader off
but she is interesting and each story is unique.
