The Book of Other People - Zadie Smith, David Mitchell, George Saunders, Colm Tóibín, Aleksandar Hemon, Nick Hornby, Hari Kunzru, Toby Litt, Chris Ware The stories collected in this book are supposed to demonstrate the role of character in fiction. Some of the stories indeed masterfully bring to life vivid, vibrant, unforgettable characters. And then other stories are mildly irritating or seriously boring and pretentious. The quality of the stories is very uneven, but still it was a worthwhile read for the sake of some remarkable stories ( Judith Castle by David Mitchell, Gideon by ZZ Packer, Lele by Edwidge Danticat, Magda Mandella by Hari Kunzru, Puppy by George Saunders, Rhoda by Jonathan Safran Foer, Soleil by Vindella Vida).
