Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hailed as one of the best short story writers of his generation, T.C. Boyle presents sixteen stories--nine of which appeared in The New Yorker--that highlight the evolving excellence of his inventive, modern, and wickedly witty style. In After the Plague, Boyle exhibits his maturing themes through an amazing array of subjects in a range of emotional keys. He taps today's headlines, from air rage (Friendly Skies) to abortion doctors (Killing Babies), and delves into more naturalistic themes of quiet power and passion, from a tale of first love (The Love of My Life) to a story about confronting old age (Rust). Combining joy and humor with the dark, intense scenarios that Boyle's audience has come to love, After the Plague reveals a writer at the top of his form.

Synopsis:

This is a collection of short stories, from surrealism to satire, from the psychological to the slapstick.

Synopsis:

A formidable short story collection from this award-winning American writer. "Hip, slick and witty" "Sunday Telegraph".
