about

Mythic and realistic, farcical and tragic, The Washington Post Book World says these masterful stories mark T. Coraghessan Boyle's development from "a prodigy's audacity to something that packs even more of a wallop: mature artistry." They cover everything, from a terrifying encounter between a bunch of suburban adolescents and a murderous, drug-dealing biker, to a touching though doomed love affair between Eisenhower and Nina Khruschev.

Editorial Reviews

"Satirical fables of contemporary life, so funny and acutely observed that they might have been written by Evelyn Waugh as sketches for...'Saturday Night Live.' ...Indeed, the best of his stories not only make the reader see; they make the reader hear and smell and feel." --The New York Times
