Read full description of the books:
I would give this anthology a 3.5, but my favorite stories were at least 4s. "Fiction on a Stick" gathers writers from various backgrounds who have some tie to Minnesota. I'd not read any of them. My favorite story probably was "Nobody's Brother," about an African-American veteran of the Korean War who meets a Holocaust survivor. I also really liked "Some Advice on Arranged Marriage," about a young woman of Indian descent who goes on a couple of arranged dates. Not all the stories are set in Minnesota, but many of them are.
For some reason, this collection had an unusual number of stories about adolescent boys.
A few of the stories are from the "Very Vague" school of short-story writing, in which writers try to be clever but really never tell you what the story is supposed to be about. They are so circumspect about details that I just do not care about the characters. But most of the stories are solid and a few were standouts for me. Recommended for fans of short fiction.
