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. Download and start listening now!
