I decided that it was just too nice out to sit at my computer writing papers and outlining so I took this book out on my porch and finished it. I thought it was wonderful. It is funny and smart and honest. It was nice to read a collection of stories that all involved one character. Like getting the best of both the short story and novel worlds. I liked how she used different voices and threw in the story that did not involve Jane. I just found the whole thing refreshing. Bank also wrote The Wonder Spot
– I'm looking forward to reading it someday.
I'm still undecided about what my next book will be.
EDIT: I think it's going to be Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. It has been on my TBR list for too long.
