I love Dawn Powell's novels, but the short stories don't quite measure up. They lean more heavily on her anger than on her humor, offsetting the balance that makes her longer works so enjoyable. That said, "Cheerio," one of the most devastating stories about bohemia you'll ever read, manages to encompass everything that made her such a fierce satirist. ( )
