5.0 out of 5 stars Superb stories from the Midwest's Faulkner, 16 Dec 1998
By A Customer
This collection shows Gass at his best. Tales of life from rural Iowa (where I have spent much time and thus have a fondness for) that intermix exitential longing and boredom, mysticism, and self-delusion. If you want to be cheered up, this is not the book for you. But if you want to know and love characters in their strange caged lives you will devour this work. I did in 3 days. I especially recommend "The Clairevoyant," a very well done work of magical realism. Also, it might help to skip the first short story, if its not to your taste (it was to mine). It's a very experimental, non-narrative work which is not representative of the anthology. If it turns you off skip it and read the rest.
