    1. I liked this one better than the previous issue. Not all the stories were amazing, but most had admirable qualities. "The Jar of Water" by Ursula K. Le Guin felt like it should have been more than it was, but I went along for the ride. Alejandro Zambra's offering was well written (I love the sound of his prose), but the story itself was lacking. Dean Bakopoulos's list of regrets were fantastic, hilarious, even though the story lacked a strong plot. The best story to me was "K-I-S-S-I-N-G" by Reb [...]

    2. This edition of Tin House had a good selection of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. "K-I-S-S-I-N-G" by Rebecca Makkai was a slick short story that was entertaining to read while leaving a lot to think about by the story's end. However, I think that the story with the greatest moral is "The Jar of Water" by Ursula K. Le Guin. Kas is a model of an honest man and a faithful servant.

    3. There were some stories in here that were definitely interesting and vibrant, but a lot of duds, at least to me. As usual, the poetry left something to be desired, although there were a few that made it worthwhile and noteworthy.

    4. 3 1/2 stars. I was impressed by most of the stories here, in particular, Rebecca Makkai's K-I-S-S-I-N-G. I'm not the biggest poetry fan, but I found quite a few of the poems here quite good. This is my first issue of Tin House and I'm looking forward to my next one.
