Over the course of eight stories, we are introduced to a host of young people on the cusp of discovery and loss. As he evokes the various states of agony and, rebellion, camaraderie, and desire-Benioff displays a profound understanding of the transformative power of a single moment and how sadness can be illuminated by a humorous flip side. I recalled the sort of feelings when reading City of Thieves, at least in part. All of these stories are written beautifully.

He is the son of Barbara (Benioff) and Stephen Friedman, who is a former head of Goldman Sachs. He is a distant cousin of Salesforce founder Marc Benioff. As an adult, he uses the last.

Burn scars covered his forearms. The first time I saw this. The first time I saw this happen I ran to the ice machine for an ice cube, came back and pressed it against the angry red splotch on his skin. He watched me, smiling. He had the darkest eyes of any white man I’ve ever known, and the biggest hands. That was my first day waiting tables at Wiley’s

I am a big fan of Benioff’s writing. His book, City of Thieves, was easily in my top five books of 2016. I had been saving this collection of short stories so as not to deplete my Benioff supply and while I am pleased to have read these stories I am somewhat deflated that I nothing else of his left to read.

This collection of stories is eclectic. On the surface some of them are a little weird, but they are all profoundly personal and human. I think that is because Benioff is essentially writing about the could have beens, the what ifs, the fork in the road in the form of ordinary moments that can change the course of your entire life. And even if they don’t change your life, we all wonder about the ripple effects of our actions. There is an accessibility in Benioff’s stories because he is writing about the human condition and I love his writing style because it is spare and honest and broken down to essentials of what we feel and experience.

I am still carrying all of the stories in this collection with me, even the ones that didn’t sit comfortably with me. That is a testament to his skill as a writer that he can make the reader take that discomfort and let it dwell in you and think about it long after you have turned the last page.

I say read everything Benioff has written – you won’t be sorry!

This is a completely different book from Benioff's other two excellent novels, The 25th Hour and City of Thieves.

To state the obvious, it's made up of short stories, although one could just as easily call them precious gems. The writing is spectacular and the memory of the stories stays with you for months after.

The stories run all over place and time. There's a great story about a ruthless music agent, how he disassembles a NYC band to pluck its star, and what happens to him when an aggrieved member of the band tracks him down to LA. There's a story about a man whose father shot animals which also features the Greatest Lover on the East Coast (not counting Florida; they're independent, the author tells us, tongue in cheek.) There's a story about a double blind study of AIDS medications. There's a story about a trio of Russian soldiers looting a suspected collaborator's home in Chechnya.

In reexamining the book, I tried to pick a favorite story and failed miserably. One moment I think its about the soldiers, but then I think about the AIDS test, and then...

Several things stand out about Benioff. First of all, he's got a great imagination. The range and scope of these stories is very wide, and he seems equally at home roaming the Russian countryside in winter as well as walking through an AIDS ward in an IC Unit or stalking an escaped lion in the heart of the city. Secondly, he has some unbelievable turns of phrase that are very well crafted. And, his characters are finely drawn inside of a few pages. In his story about the jilted lover, the reader really feels the pain of the narrator and perfidy of his paramour.

There's a big surge in interest in good American shortstories. I'd have to put this book on the short list for anyone interested in this area.

Richly recommended.

David Benioff is a beautiful wordsmith and a brave thinker. The stories meander through a variety of tones, themes and settings, but all are suffused with wistfulness or haunted by tragedy. On the other hand, several are also quite funny. Characters are vivid, like expressionist portraits. This is a short-story writer who reminds you exactly why you love short stories.

Mr. Benioff is an engaging writer. Each story in this book is surprising to the reader; they are not predictable. He keeps the reader's interest. I was particularly impressed with the last story, it is quite extraordinary and extremely honest seeming in terms of realism. All good stories.

I love this author, his work honestly seems like it could always be true to me. This book was different than his others. Each chapter was a new short story. Some were typical fictitious lives and others were exaggerated to exercise a more dramatic scenario. I loved it still, definitely a favorite read.

The Devil Comes Comes to Orekhovo is easily one of my favorite short stories I've ever read. While this story and some of the others (Merde, Neversink, When the Nines Roll Over, Barefoot Girl) may be incredibly well-crafted, I have to admit I found some of the other stories disappointing. Still, it's a short story collection. You aren't going to love them all. It is certainly worth the purchase, though.

David Benioff is the man! Wish he wrote more books. A stellar collection of street stories! Love this book along with The 25th Hour and City of Thieves.
An engrossing collection of short stories from a master storyteller. I like everything Benioff has written.
