I sampled and skimmed the 12 stories in Jay McInerney’s new collection titled, How It Ended. I guess I never found out how it ended, since I put the book aside without finishing it. I had read most of the stories when originally published, and found myself turning to the next one rather than re-rereading one I had read years earlier. They might have been worth spending the time reading the first time around, but for whatever reason, I had no interest in reading them again.
