    This is one of the first books I remember buying I last read it maybe 10 years ago At some point I added it on Goodreads and rated it 4 For the life of me I cannot tell why I would do such a thing, rate it 4 I mean Whatever the reason I am fixing it now Tobias Wolff is one of the best writers writing short stories in English Of course there s no way I could prove this, we all know literature awards really mean not much anyway and he s got a few, I m just saying and there s quite a few walk This is one of the first books I remember buying I last read it maybe 10 years ago At some point I added it on Goodreads and rated it 4 For the life of me I cannot tell why I would do such a thing, rate it 4 I mean Whatever the reason I am fixing it now Tobias Wolff is one of the best writers writing short stories in English Of course there s no way I could prove this, we all know literature awards really mean not much anyway and he s got a few, I m just saying and there s quite a few walking about trying to explain why this is so so you ll have to show some faith and read on Like much of dirty realism his stories are often snapshots of everyday life lived by everyday people Unlike much of dirty realism his stories do have a point to make, or rather aobvious one, and often, uncomfortably, a moral one The man handles prose like the tenderest scalpel imaginable, barely touching, cold and calculated strokes that make one go wow at the things revealed One has to care to be able to observe the things he does and one needs skill to present them like this and not like that There s 23 stories here, three or four are just okay, most are excellent and six are nothing less than masterpieces If you enjoy short stories but have yet to read Tobias Wolff you really need to step on it

    Literary stories of the slice of life variety They seemed flawless to me, poised perfectly at the half way point between poignancy and irony Is this because I normally only read horror stories I think they re genuinely very good, Wolff s stories.

    I think it must have beenthen 20 years since I bought this one from the sale rack at LundeQ bookstore in Uppsala I was studying literature but sometimes the classics, the Homer and Vergil and Materlink and Schiller and Byrons just felt like too much Too many expressions and I longed to sink into something ordinary Something a bit like home even though the home here is mainly American suburbs I could still relate.
