I never seem to connect with Chabon's short stories the way I do his full-length novels, but his brilliant metaphors and true-to-life moments are still there. "That Was Me" could be a variation on events in my own life.
This is the ultimate coffee table book. Leave it there and when you are feeling a little down or depressed pick it up. I took the advice offered in the introduction and tried to read a couple of my favorite letters out loud to people. I was in tears. This book is meant to be taken in small doses so don't sit down and read it from cover to cover. Pay attention to the small quirky details he puts into the letters, they are the funniest parts. Read some letters out loud and see if you can finish them.
