Why it's worth reading: The title story of this collection -- like every story in its pages -- is very, very good, but the real stand-out (which, granted, would’ve lent the book a less fitting title) is "The Prairie Wife." I first read it online last summer when it was published in The New Yorker -- I read it twice then, actually, starting...
