review 1: Title story is written well-enough, but mostly this collection is rather scattered- "oneiric," if I were inclined to be generous. Either way, it's a quick read, and a lot of the stories are reasonably interesting conceptually- just not particularly compelling. YMMV, if you're into dark & disjointed.It does, however, have enough bright spots that other writers should consider it for a browse.
review 2: The Driver's Guide to Hitting Pedestrians is a collection of short stories by Andersen Prunty.Andersen Prunty is swiftly becoming one of my favorite authors due to his versatility, something that is nicely illustrated in this short story collection.

... morere twenty-three short stories in this collection and they're all very different. You get the tale of a driver in a gruesome game where you score points for hitting pedestrians, a man whose teeth leave his gums one day to go see the world, an architect building a skyscraper on his back, and a man who buys his favorite author at a bookstore. And those are just a few of the odd delights contained within.If you're looking to give Andersen Prunty a shot, this is a good sampling of his work. Plus it will look good on your bookshelf. less

Really let down by this book. The collection of short stories was just meh and uninteresting.
Didn't finish it, got bored after the first few stories.
Barry Yourgrau does what he does, but better.
