In my opinion this is the best of the BASS series so far. Each story is a gem and the volume should be considered essential for short story writers. Tobias Wolff's taste is impeccable and his sight for the good story should be commended. Many of the authors included in this volume have gone on to have good and wide ranging careers ( )
