These stories, told in a voice that is at once witty, melancholy, and bravely honest, paint a tableau of lovers and family, of loss and pleasure, desire and memory. From the young secretary who by day hopes someone will notice her Phi Beta Kappa key and by night makes love to a married man she met at a Florsheim shoe store, to the shattering of a marriage by the shores of a tranquil lake, Self-Help is a unique, enduring work of short fiction.

Moore has such a way with wordplay, puns and obscure references, that I finished the book certain that I had missed quite a bit of the smart stuff. The writing is clever and sometimes gimmicky (such as a diary presented in reverse chronology), and well worth a read by short story aficionados.
