Read full description of the books:



Most of this book I didn't like. Why, then, the four stars? Well, two of the stories in here are so good that I would pay the purchase price of this book just to read them a single time. But then, would we buy anthologies if books were nickelodeons and bookstores arcades?
But the stories, worth their weight in parakeets:
Jonathan Safran Foer's "If the Aging Magician Should Begin to Believe", and
Robert Coover's "Grand Hotels"

I won't say any more about them, lest I spoil the surprise, but if you end up reading "Grand Hotels" and liking it, Coover's written a secret second edition with more stories in the same lode, also inspired by Joseph Cornell.

(And OK, I enjoyed "Cursive Example" and "Emory Bear Hands' Birds". And the beautiful Cornell bird pictures and biographical info. And I half-liked Dale Peck's story. In fact, this is the second Dale Peck story --the first one in the London-themed edition of Granta-- that I've half-liked. Who is this Dale Peck person, anyway? Where does s/he get off writing degraded, shiny stories I hate/love/am intrigued/bored by?)

But seriously. Foer and Coover. And lots of pretty pictures of birds in boxes...
