The stories are brand new...really new! A fresh take on "unusual" characters and plots with really good narration.
There is such a varied collection of stories it is difficult to speak of them as a whole but I enjoyed the mystery, humor, sass and the pure creative spirit of this audio book.
There are multiple narrators. These stories uncannily have the right narrator for each one.
Joyce Carol Oates' "Fossil Figures" a story of twins was a favorite as was "Wild Fire in Manhattan" by Joanne Harris, "Juvenal Nicks" by Walter Mosley plus "Catch and Release" by Lawrence Block, Actually too many characters over-all to list.
Lots of listening time. I have listened to these stories multiple times and probably will continue to do so. This is a favorite "travel buddy". Of at lease 25+ audio books, this is the only one to which I repeatedly return.
Don't be mislead by the title. I am a "Constant Reader" and chose to listen to this tome because my wrists got tired holding it in bed. It was slow in spots; in my opinion his books of this length always hits a lag. If you can push past that point he eventually "comes to himself". If my opinion he is really the "King of the Short Story" but I'll read...and have...anything and everything he writes or has written
