After noting some of the big name authors with stories in this collection, I was excited. Ultimately, it was a let down. Sure, the writing was topnotch in many cases, but the stories themselves were a little bland. I read this over the course of months - it was my book in the car, being read when I waited to pick my kids up from school or when my wife made a quick stop at a store - but I looked through the titles again when I finally finished and nothing rang a bell. On the other hand, the Moth collection I read much the same way had easily a half dozen stories still in my mind long after reading them. Long and short for In Short - it's just OK. ( )

I'm not so sure about the editors' assertion about there being a mass movement towards the 'short' in non-fiction writing, but they make for excellent reading.

The styles vary as drastically as the quality, like any collection. There are two ways of reading this, one being to flip back and forth, picking and choosing at will in any particular order. That was how I first read this as part of a class, each of us picking several stories over the course of the semester to either read out loud or (for those longer pieces) have read by the class, the professor chose favorites, too. The spontaneous nature of this sometimes led to amusing scenes of people flipping through the book for a new choice because someone else had picked the same story. The second way to read this is from start to finish. The order chosen by the editors, the order I read this time, is effective in that each story links with its neighbors somehow thematically or otherwise. It was like a great game of literary 5 degrees of separation.

I'll resist the temptation to list my favorites. ( )
