Excellent Short Stories

These are excellent short stories, reminiscent of Joyce Carol Oates. Some of them seemed like a cross between Oates and Diane Arbus, the darkness or the ordinary.

awesome grab bag of hilarious stories.

I first read this book about twelve years ago and I still go back to it regularly because it makes me laugh, although some of the stories are serious as well. My favorite stories are "Vermont" and "Weekend." If you want to know what the '70s were really like, then here's where you should start.
