A weaker read for me than his other short-story collections on the whole. N. is spectacular, though.
Willa: OK sentimental ghost story
The Gingerbread Girl: Good thriller
Harvey's Dream: Now we are talking. For extra kick, which one was?
Rest Stop: Awesomesauce!
Stationary Bike: If not writing, then images. And addictions. I love how he has his "go to" obsessive mind-itches that he always comes back to write about.
The things they left behind: I liked bits and pieces *shrug* I tend to avoid lit on the topic
Graduation Afternoon: Vignette building for that last snapshot. Meh
N. : This one was freaky scary. Likely because we all are little OCD. Best one in the book.
The Cat from Hell: Liked this one, and that gruesome end!
The New York Times at special bargain rates: Liked the idea. Sweet and sad.
Mute: I found this one funny in a bewildering way.
Ayana: People passing it on. A lovely concept.
A very tight place: It was good. And gross (so very gross). And good.
