Overview

By turns mythic and realistic, farcical and tragic, ironic and moving, T.C. Boyle's stories have mapped a wide range of human emotions. The fifty-eight stories in this volume, written over eighteen years, reflect his maturing themes. Along with the satires and tall tales that established his reputation, readers will find stories speaking to contemporary social issues, from air rage to abortion doctors, and character-driven tales of quiet power and passion. Others capture timeless themes, from first love and its consequences to confrontations with mortality, or explore the conflict between civilization and wildness.
