    The best part of a good collection is watching a writer s voice develop over time Reading Uncommon Women, I thought, This is nice, I guess kind of like a Seinfeld episode mildly amusing, with very random characters who talk like people really talk, and nothing actually happens By Isn t It Romantic, I was thinking, Well, she s good at capturing a particular historical moment and showing how women think and feel, but she s not actually making me feel anything She s good, but she s no Jane The best part of a good collection is watching a writer s voice develop over time Reading Uncommon Women, I thought, This is nice, I guess kind of like a Seinfeld episode mildly amusing, with very random characters who talk like people really talk, and nothing actually happens By Isn t It Rom...
