I heard Colin Channer (the founder of the Calabash and editor of the collection) and Marlon James speak at Brookline Booksmith recently. Both the stories they read from the anthology were excellent - funny and well written. Perhaps part of it was their voice acting and just personality but I recommend reading "How to Beat a Child the Right and Proper way."
