Great review, Chris. It's great to read your impressions of this collection from the point of exploring Smith's works, if that makes sense. Actually, your review may have just helped getting rid of my reviewing slump - I started writing a reply here but it got a bit lengthy and I'll make it into a proper review this evening. In short, tho, i agree the this collection is not Smith at her best - it seemed a bit rushed and some of the stories have been published before in different contexts that were more meaningful.
I strongly recommend The First Person as a collection of more memorable stories. Some of which still make me smirk just thinking about them.
And of course, I can recommend the novels. :D
