I didn't care for this issue of Best American Short Stories as much as I have most of the issues I've read, which surprised me because the series editor is Margaret Atwood who I really like. My favorite stories in this collection include "Kubuku Rides (This Is It)" by Larry Brown, "White Angel" by Michael Cunningham and "The Management of Grief" by Bharati Mukherjee. ( )
