Groff’s work is always a pleasure to read, and a couple of the stories resonated deeply with me. However, as a whole, this collection seems like a series of self-insert musings. Not bad, per se, but perhaps better suited to a memoir.

The first and twenty-first chapters should have been the entire book. Miranda’s inner musings while stumbling through revelations get old quite quickly

Well written, just not grabbing me. I’d like to try this book again at some point.
