This collection of short stories is well worth the read, and has some very thought-provoking pieces in it. I particularly liked the lightness of touch in Toby Litt's "Rare Books and Manuscripts" and the devastating power of Efe Okogu's "The Train Game" - the book would be worth it just for those two alone (although other stories here are nearly as good!).
On the "down side", I thought the offerings from the big names, such as Maggie Gee and Ben Okri, were distinctly below par, but these didn't detract from the book's overall quality.
Definitely worth buying.
