These stories were fairly bland and mediocre. I don't understand why the literary critics on the cover and back seemed to goad this forward with so much respect and admiration. There was not much to interest me in these stories and none of them really stood out. They weren't bad, per se, but they definitely were not worth mentioning.

Gorge yourself on these superb short stories from the master of the form in English, bar none. There is not a wasted word but be warned: These are so good that it will drive you to seek out Pritchett's literary biographies, criticism, essays, travel pieces and two volumes of autobiography. ( )
