I read the first 3-4 stories when I first picked this book up, and then finished the rest this past week. I was really impressed by this collection. His stories are funny, complex, sometimes profound, and very relevant (how many review bingo words did I get there?). I expected quirky but I really don't think they are.
The last piece reminded me of a Kelly Link story (there are lots of other similarities there) and would like to read both of them again back to back.
