Stephen King (Editor of this year's Best American Short Stories) has
an essay in the New York Times Sunday Book Review:
"There isn't a single one in this book that didn't delight me, that
didn't make me want to crow, "Oh, man, you gotta read this!" I think
of such disparate stories as Karen Russell's "St. Lucy's Home for
Girls Raised by Wolves," John Barth's "Toga Party" and "Wake," by
Beverly Jensen, now deceased, and I think — marvel, really — they paid
me to read these! Are you kiddin' me???"
