"Caroline Adderson's second short story collection, Pleased To Meet You, is a sardonic, bulletproof literary achievement that examines the lives of the angry and misunderstood.... Those looking for easy redemptions won't find them in this collection, but sophisticated readers will find Adderson's cruelly tender style both rich and readable."
