Similar voice to Hemingway and Steinbeck, minimal, naturalistic flourishes. A bit gonzo, a bit more adventurous high society than the previous. Holly Golightly is certainly a type. ( )

No review - read too long ago to recall. ( )

There‘s some racist language in this that‘s awfully hard to stomach and a complete lack of lovable characters. There is something compelling about the story despite all that though. Michael C. Hall‘s narration is excellent. ( )

The highlight of this was not the title story- good tho it is- but the three other short stories."A Diamond Guitar" set in a men's prison in a forest was superb, but the final "A Christmas Memory" was just *5 writing ( )
