This book was interesting. I can't say I loved it, but I definitely enjoyed the stories and would read more by her. One thing that bothered me, though, was that they're all told in first person, all about different people, and yet all have the same, very odd/quirky voice to them. Which...would work fine if that were her narrative voice and she were writing in third person. Less so when I'm supposed to believe that every one of these people is this peculiar in exactly the same way.

One thing that greatly amused me, though, is that two of the stories are RPF! But, but! I thought only perverts and sickos on the internets wrote fiction about real people! One of the stories has Madeleine L'Engle as a character, as well as Madeleine L'Engle's (fictional) husband. And the husband has an affair! Maybe it's okay because Madeleine L'Engle is (recently) dead.
