5.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking 12 Jun. 2015
By Elizabeth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Olsen's short stories are thought-provoking, so although sometimes her writing style vexed and confused me, I really loved the book. They were powerful vignettes. I've already recommended (and bought) this book for my friends.

She is a most amazing writer. She gets into the heart of the reader and squeezes it.

2.0 out of 5 stars History of American "lower class" 28 April 2014
By Norma J. Kruse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am told by English Majors that this is the "crown jewel" of American literature. It certainly brings one into the everyday life of the pre WWII poor society. I could not finish it - too painful.
