If you are from Chicago, especially the south side, much of the descriptions will be familiar. Dybek's writing paints pictures in your mind.

This is a book of short stories surrounding the history of Chicago. Some of the stories were not that well written, however not being from Chicago, maybe I didn't understand the significance of the story.

An excellent short story collection, full of elegant prose. Read it, and find yourself glimpsing Chicago as well.
