Infinite Joe

I like challenging books that make you think, and leave you happy that you did. Typically, I find character driven literary fiction the most satisfying, although I in no way think of myself as a serious literary critic.

Back in the World: Stories

Back in the World: Stories - Tobias Wolff I read a recent story by Wolff in The New Yorker and liked it, and so I thought I'd give one of his collections a try. Aside from "Desert Breakdown, 1968", which I would give a 5, and maybe one other story that I'd give a 3, the rest of the stories just did absolutely nothing for me.
