I am blown away by the variety of stories in this collection. There are Nazis, tenure committees, bureaucratic backstabbers, sketch artists, affairs, revenge tales, a man obsessed with his bowels....There's a pawn shop that operates in stories and ideas. You find a different version of what happened to Dorian Gray, from the perspective of Sibyl Vane. My favorite story switches between the perspectives of different people involved in the production of a play, including the stage itself and the backstage mirror. Michael Tabor is quite clever and I would like to read more of his work.
