KIRKUS REVIEW

By now, for these plots/I could fill in the dots/With one hand behind me/And a blindfold to blind me./And yet I keep reading them,/Greedily needing them./Don't think of stinting them,/Just keep on printing them."" A poetic preface to an unusually good collection from James Michael Ulman's The Dinner Party where a wife goes all out not to impress the boss to De Forbes' Quetzalcoatl, a nasty number about a little boy doing in his nurse, to Joe Gores' very realistic view of an execution and what it's all about in The Second Coming. Memorable mayhem, with a welcome preponderance of new names for the book audience.
