Impenetrable prose, cold and oppressive, with nothing to draw you in. Really awful, terribly written 'stories', with nothing at all to recommend them.

The description is simply the dust jacket blurb. The story Oblivion is about the wife's repressed experience of childhood incest.

Absolute crap. Absolute male self-absorbed sterile twaddle.

An amazing compilation- Wallace is a true genius, so sad that he had to leave us. "Good Old Neon" is an unbelievable short story. Reminded me of the way Salinger wrote a bit- as if the writer's thoughts are so removed from this world that they are in an entirely different universe. Also- "The Soul is not a Smithy" was tremendous... The book jacket said it perfectly- he creates worlds as detailed and complete as if each story is a novel in itself. Brilliant.
