Great short story collection

"Pilgrims" has to be one of the more disturbing stories I've read. That's not a criticism, just a fact.

The stories I liked best and feel I learned the most from (craft wise) were "When She Is Old And I Am Famous" and "The Isabel Fish."

Even though the subject matter differed, I found the voice in "Notes to Sixth-Grade Self" to be too derivative of Moore's Self-Help: Stories.
