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.

The Best American Short Stories 2012

The Best American Short Stories - Tom Perrotta, Heidi Pitlor A very solid collection of sort stories chosen by a very solid guest editor. There were maybe 2 stories I would have only given 3 stars to (Tenth of December, and What's Important Is Feeling"), and there were a few that deserved 5 stars (with "The Sex Lives of African Girls" being towards the top). The majority hovered in between.

I'm happy I found this series, and have already added a few other editions to my "to read" list by guest editors I really admire.
