I think the tastes of the Paris Review editors often surpass those of their New Yorker counterparts. The stories and poems in Paris Review are more eclectic and often more lively and irreverent. I'm thinking of current contributors like Frederick Seidel, J.D. Daniels, and Ottessa Moshfegh, none of whom are included in this anthology, which came out in 2004. Nevertheless, the idea behind the anthology is a novel one, to include pieces of varying lengths that can be read in various settings--a pla [...]

This book offers a refreshing take on how fine writing can fit into our lives. Arranged based on the length of time needed to read the piece (ie Elevator to Waiting Room), The Paris Review offers an amazing anthology of America's best contemporary authors and poets. The table of contents reads like a who's who of post-modern worthies: Denis Johnson, Junot Diaz, Alice Munro, Carver, Ballard, Oates, Sharon Olds, A R Ammons, Billy Collins, Rick Moody and the list goes on. I would recommend this boo [...]

This is a collection of stories and poems from the last 50 or so years of the Paris Review literary journal. Obviously if they were in the PR, they're pretty damn good and by pretty well-known people (though they may not have been known at the time they were first published there). The gimmick of this book is that, kind of like Uncle John's Bathroom Reader, it divides the selections into those of appropriate lengths for plains, trains, waiting rooms, and elevators.

Can I give this zero stars? This was the most drab story collection I've read all yeard to think this was not one writer, no! this was many writers coming together to collect the worst story they've ever written, then allowing them to be printed and bound inside a book that will collect dust forever in the darkest corner of my closet.

Satisfying Quick Reads for Short Attention SpansThis book is the ideal quick read, because it was engineered for that purpose. The anthology is actually organized for the situation and amount of time you have on your hands. Let The Paris Review curate reading material for every moment of waiting in your life.

There's some real gems in here that linger with the reader. I especially liked the second to last story in the book which haunts me days later. There's some amazing poems that are succinct to the feelings they are conveying.

Some of the stories were good, some a little weird. Not much into short stories.

I did just spend a lot of time on planes, trains, elevators, and waiting rooms (or airports, at least). So this was great, but I thought some of the pieces dragged a little or left me cold.

A mixed bag of stories and poems. Some are very good, others are forgettable the moment they are over.
