Critics have acclaimed the collection as perhaps John O'Hara's best and most classic work. "O'Hara may not have been the best story writer of the twentieth century, but he is the most addictive, " wrote Loren Stein, editor in chief of the Paris Review, in a 2013 appreciation of O'Hara's work, adding, You can binge on his collections the way some people binge on Mad Men, and for some of the same reasons. On the topics of class, sex, and alcohol, that is, the topics that mattered to him, his novels amount to a secret history of American life.
