I was never a big fan of short story collections until I picked up Jenny and the Jaws of Life. It's quickly become one of my favorite books of all time (right up there with A Widow for One Year and Mother Night). The stories in it are dark, bizarre and funny. I liked it so much I bought two copies.

After I lent out the first and it was never returned I was more careful. But now the second one's lost as well. I wanted to read the stories again, so I recently bought three copies; two for lending, one for keeping (just to be on the safe side).

Absolutely love this book. Reading Jincy is like no other author or story you have ever read. I can read this book over and over.

The stories were not funny, just excruciating. If I heard them read by Sadaris they might be more satisfying. Not worth the money.

The book came fast and was still wrapped in plastic and in perfect condition. I lost my copy years ago and its one of my favorites. I was very pleased.

I bought this book because I have read, and loved, two of Jincy Willett's other books. This book was a huge disappointment. David Sedaris, a very funny man, said on the cover, "It's just the funniest collection of stories I've ever read - really funny and perfectly sad at the same time." Well, I get the perfectly sad - just not the really funny. Not a chuckle from me throughout. Just really sad stories.
