This should be required reading. The characters in these stories grapple with the most serious issues, sometimes literally. In David Quammen's "Walking Out," a mistake creates a dire struggle between man and nature. And Stanley Elkin's vision of conventional religious beliefs and the afterlife should be enough to keep a few evangelicals awake at night.
A great collection of stories that deserves a spot on the shelf, and never should be relegated to Kindle...
