What to expect

T. C. Boyle is one of the most renowned storytellers of the modern era. This collection of fourteen stories drifts effortlessly between myth and reality, encompassing a panorama of human emotions. In "The Marlbane Manchester Musser Award," Boyle reveals a writer's dismay when a simple trip is turned upside down by a stranger. "Los Gigantes" tells the story of a group of giants being used to create a new breed of soldier for the military. In "The Way You Look Tonight" Boyle examines the way our perceptions of our loved ones can change on a dime with just a simple revelation. And in "Sic Transit" he shows how quickly we can become consumed with curiosity.

Boyle travels the world in these and the rest of the stories, from California to Russia, Latin America to upstate New York, but his adept touch at depicting the lives of his characters never wavers.
