This is a book about making a mark. All six main stories here are very strong and insightful. Rebecca Curtis has a stand out piece about the question of how much to give and take. Joe Meno's piece is somewhat heavy on the symbolism but enjoyable enough. Pieces by Jim Shepard and Wells Tower both threaten to be overwhelmed by their authors differing stylistic quirks but equally prove themselves worth reading in the end. Two short pieces by Stuart Dybek and Tom Barbash both pack a punch. ( )

The fiction in McSweeney's 44 isn't particularly spectacular (though Jim Shepard's "The Ocean of Air" is quite nice), but the "Portraits of Lawrence Weschler" section, containing an interview between Weschler and Errol Morris, plus a series of essays on Weschler and his works, makes this volume worth reading all on its own.
