    I read Boys and Girls--stunning description and ends with a muted life changing declaration.

    @Christine62 Thanks for this! I love short stories, and I love Alice Munro! Next to being a CR, I'm a short story fan. There are a few anthologies I try to snag every year: Best American Short Stories, O'Henry and Pushcart when they're available. There's even a Best American volume that was guest edited by Stephen King - it's my prized volume! Also by reading a couple of these Alice Munro's online, I have discovered that I don't like reading online - I've been debating on getting an ereader, now I think I know I wouldn't like it. I need a real live book. But it was cool to read these - thanks!

    This was a great book. I love how the "freaks" were shown as a normal family, and they were all so manipulative. No "inspirationally disabled" here!
