I'm tired of this whole style I don't know what to call it even Talented female writers whose characters I can't stand who seem to be made of nothing but self obsessive neurosis I'll just go back and re read Margaret Atwood's short stories or something I can't believe so many reviews of the title story failed to see how Atwood derivative it wasI'm sure I'll read a few stories before I return this to the library but they don't hold together as a collection It's that lost anemic female narrator thing that I can't tolerate
