Includes "The Misfits": a story about two loser cowboys and a bush pilot roping mustangs. Not much of a story plot, but Hollywood somehow made a full-length movie from it. Oh well, if they could do it with Hemingway's "After the Storm" then why not!
The only story that I enjoyed was "Fitter's Night."
