Review:
omments on previously-released stories:

"The Only Meaning of the Oil-Wet Water," originally published in Zoetrope: All Story, was named a finalist for the National Magazine Award for Fiction, and included in the Best American Magazine Writing 2004.

"Up the Mountain Coming Down Slowly" is a masterpiece . . the narration is magisterial, without a false note. It may well be the last great twentieth-century short story. -- The Observer, (London)

"After I Was Thrown in the River and Before I Drowned" is a small tour de force that ratifies [Eggers¹s] ability to write about anything with style and vigor and genuine emotion. --Michiko Kakutani, the New York Times
