I'm not usually drawn to short story collections, but I'd read an intriguing review about this one. I'm glad I picked it up because I loved it! The characters were vivid and compelling and the stories were thoughtful. They ranged from the weird to completely relatable and there wasn't a dud in the bunch. I highly recommend giving this one a try!

Some brilliant (even though predictable) stories (the first four in the collection), the title story doesn't work the best for me. Stories of infamous (less privileged) people seem to ring the brighter bell (e.g.: Five Rooms, Whatshisname, Clear Conscience, Words That Once Shocked Us).
In terms of narrative style, some are highly original though, "The New, All-True CV" appeals to me much stronger than "Roger Weber Would Like to Stay".

I really liked her other volume of short stories ( and not liked her novels) so I bought this and am reading it slowly, savoring it sometimes I know where it's going and sometimes I don't.
There's joy in discovery.
