I am a big fan of Portis, read all of his books. If I were Mr. Portis, I would be embarrassed by this collection. Some pretty bad writing is included as well as some early stuff that is stale and not worth reprinting.
Not much sparkle here. No reason for well-loved, living author to publish a scrapbook of sometimes trivial, dated work.
