I liked the earlier stories better. "Petrified Man," "Keela, the Outcast Indian Maiden," "Why I Live at the P.O." and "A Worn Path" in particular from A Curtain of Green. Of the later stories, I liked "June Recital" best. I didn't really get into the essays that much, but her Memoir was very interesting. She is simply a brilliant writer even if some of her stories aren't my cup of tea.
