Book and box design - 5 stars! Top notch. How the Water Feels to the Fishes - Dave Eggers - 4 stars. Most consistent in style (though perhaps a little too safe at times). I enjoyed reading the stories ... Read full review

User Review  - Steven - Goodreads

Similar to Steve Martin's instructions on folding soup, Dave Eggers has a great explaination for how radios work. Nobody knew how radios make sound, so it was grand team of people that carfully took one apart to see how it worked with surprising results. I love that kind of stuff. Read full review

User Review  - Shonna Froebel - Goodreads

This collection of three small hardcover books in a box is a nice little set of stories. I particularly enjoyed those of Manguso, all of which were a page or less. I liked Eggers stories as well, but ... Read full review

Review: One Hundred and Forty Five Stories in a Small Box: Hard to Admit and Harder to Escape, How the Water Feels to the Fishes, and Minor Robberies
