What all the stories in this collection have in common is a keen eye and ear for pacing and plotting. All of them, whether the narrator is a vulnerable young girl or a hardened ex-con pulling off one more heist, will keep you turning the pages, desperate to find out what happens next. If you enjoy mystery, crime, or suspense, this collection offers a delicious sampler platter of different styles and subgenres. Recommended for all fans of mysteries and thrillers, as well as anyone wanting to get a taste of contemporary American fiction.
Maybe it's because I've been wishing for a long time for stories about people I can relate to. In the past so many tales have been about lowlifes and hardcore criminals living in a world far removed from mine. So I enjoyed reading about the football coach who goes off the rails and the couple seeking the perfect house in an upscale neighborhood. Not a fan of Joyce Carol Oates and found her story disturbing. The majority, however, pulled me in.
