This is a great collection of stories by a diverse group of young authors. Although not all of the stories were ones that I would have chosen to read, I did discover some excellent authors that I would not have otherwise learned about or considered.

I mostly liked the stories collected here, which were widely varied, even the ones I didn't really understand. The strength of literary fiction is the exploration of the inner life of a character and the best of these pull some pretty nifty tricks shining a light on a creature of the imagination in a nearly miraculous way. The plots often are asked to play a secondary role.

I've had this volume on my shelf for a few years, and I decided to pick it up this month. Between grading and Christmas preparations, I don't have a lot of time to read in December, so short stories seemed like a good idea. This collection has some of my favorite authors, including Nicole Krauss, Dinaw Mengestu, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, along with some new-to-me authors. I generally enjoyed these stories. "The Science of Flight" by Yiyun Li and "Second Lives' by Daniel Alarcon stood out to me because of their ability to capture the essences of their character's lives in a few pages. These stories added layers upon layers to their characters through carefully crafted sentences meted out steadily across the story's pages.… (mere)

This is one of the best collections of short stories I've ever read and I discovered some new authors. The downside, of course, is that my new favorite authors are young and haven't written very many books yet. ::sigh::
