Curtis Sittenfeld’s latest short story collection is filled with intriguing and strong relationship stories that draw you in and, unlike many short stories, finish in a way that will often leave you satisfied with the short window into the lives of strangers. Most of the stories are told from the perspective of well educated, privileged, and often rich middle aged females. Delve into the lives of the married, single, and looking for love and sex. Sittenfeld does an excellent job of weaving the present, future, and past relationships together to help you understand each subject's psyche. At 15 minutes of reading time per story this is a great way to satisfactorily fill the spare moments of your day.

I don't usually like short stories, but this was really good. Most of them I wish had been longer, and I liked how they all portrayed love and relationships in different ways.

Curtis Sittenfeld, the author of this collection of Short Stories, has established herself as a novelist of repute. The first two stories I felt did not give her the depth required to explore her characters or the situations they were in. As I read on, however, the stories grew on me and I began to enjoy them and the twists in the tales which were quite intriguing. The book explores human nature, relationships, marriage and alternate lifestyles all of them well.

These stories are an interesting blend of gender, relationship dynamics and the unanswered questions and moments of our lives. Ultimately, they felt a bit disjointed which made it hard to really get invested in the book. I almost wish the author had focused on just one of these stories and developed it further.

These short stories feel .... off. They don't flow, and they end awkwardly .... I feel like I've missed a page, but nope , just end of story ... not a great writing style.

i've been off short stories for a while but these were excellent -- protagonists that make you a little uncomfortable with their bad (but very relatable) behavior

I’m not usually a short story reader but this was a great collection of stories. Each story left you wanting more from the characters. Good pick Reese Witherspoon!

I loved these stories. Sittenfeld picks the scabs of our relationships—both the casual and intimate. Some of her observations made me squirm from their exactness; others were charming, poignant, and harsh. The knock-out story from this collection is, for me, "The Prairie Wife," because Sittenfeld at once ridicules the way TV-culture flattens TV-persons and gives us a nonbiphobic portrayal of bisexuality. If the other stories don't click for you, skip to that one.

There weren't that many times in your life when you believed a possession would bring you happiness and you were actually right.
