I don't usually like short stories, but this book was different, some of the stories will stay with me a long time.

Does what good stories should by showing different characters at different, vulnerable times in their lives. I enjoy that there is a thread of connection between all of these stories.

Had a few 'stay with me' moments but often too Newyorky.

Wonderful collection of short stories, representing different stereotypes of women. I knew or had been all of them at some point.
