Few authors in America write with the sheer love of story, language, and imagination as T. C. Boyle. His talent and range are manifest in this selection of sixty-eight tales that span his every theme, mood, and nuance, clothed in his hallmark virtuoso prose.Mythical and realistic, farcical and tragic, these stories (written between 1972 and 1997) are grouped under the headings of "Love", "Death", and everything in between. Three of them are previously unpublished: "The Rapture Of The Deep." a galley chef's jaded and mutinous view of Cousteau's endless voyages; "Mexico," an intense tale about an American tourist and his amorous adventures with a tough female boxer; and the comedy and pathos of an old lady's frenzy to defend a houseful of stray squirrels, her "Little Fur People." Four previously uncollected stories include the mini-masterpiece "I Dated Jane Austen." Here is a definitive gift for Boyle fans and for every reader ready to discover the "ferocious, delicious imagination" (Los Angeles Times Book Review) of a "vibrant sensibility fully engaged with American society" (The New York Times.
