The usual from this author, extremely damaged characters behaving poorly and the author using a lot of unnecessary big words. There are moments of entertainment but for such a short book it takes forever to get through.

No one writes about males self destructive behavior and then their attempts at redemption better than this author. The fact that he does it with a wonderful eye for detail and a healthy dose of humor is a bonus.

The least readable and coherent McGuane book I have read.
The story - not that there is much of one never really goes anywhere.
This may have seemed different or clever in 1970 when it came out but now it is just boring.
It screams from the author let me show you how smart I am.

Thomas McGuane's writing is always fantastic. As with all short story collections some stores are better than others, but nearly every story in this book was classic McGuane.
