I bought "Some Days You Get the Bear" for the Bernie Rhodenbarr story, "The Buglar Who Dropped in On Elvis". It completed my collection of Bernie stories, and a whole lot more. There's something for everyone here... Three Matt Scudder stories, the first installment in Hit Man, two Martin Ehrengraf stories, and the brilliant "Cleaveland in My Dreams". I expected to read the Burglar story and shelve the title, but I ended up reading the whole book.

"Some Days You Get the Bear," is one of Lawrence Blocks short story collections. It's the third of four. Collections such as these are difficult to tae 1-5 because each of them in the collection is different from the others. I enjoyed some more than others; and there was one or two I didn't enjoy at all.
Characters we are familiar with from Blocks novels are here in the collection. Here we find Bernie Rhodenbarr, burglar and bookseller from the series of books that feature the person by that name. This time Bernie is hired to break into Graceland and hunt down the Elvis.
Martin Ehrengraf, a lawyer who never loses a case is here, too. Ehrengraf does not have a series of his own but is featured in Blocks fourth collection of short stories.
Matthew Scudder, Block's award winning detective is in at least two short stories. Scudder, as Block fans will recall, has is own series of more than a dozen novels.
Hit Man Keller, the assassin for hire has an entry here ass well.
All in all "Some Days You Get the Bear," is good reading and a must for Block enthusiasts.

Lawrence Block fans will like this collection. I knocked off a few stories waiting in line at the polls. Condition of book when received was better than I've seen in stores.
Lawrence Block gets it again! July 14 2013

I have loved every Lawrence Block book I have ever read. What's not to like in a collection of short stories? "How Would You Like It?" remains one of my favorites!!
