Okay, so this is a review of the new Tobias Wolff short story collection, and I link to it for two reasons:
1.) Tobias Wolff is brilliant and you should read him
2.) The review likens remembering the first time you read Tobias Wolff (Vodo’s Beginning Fiction class 2003) to the first time you heard the ‘Mats (The Camaraderie’s jukebox 1994 or 1995)
