A raucous collection of short stories from the astonishingly inventive and bestselling writer of The Harder They Come and The Terranauts

While T. C. Boyle is known as one of our greatest American novelists, he is also an acknowledged master of the short story. In The Relive Box, his first collection following two hugely influential collected volumes, Boyle’s crackling wit and thematic range combine with a penetrating social consciousness to produce his trademark “inventive and often crushingly comic” (NPR) short fiction.

From the title story, featuring a so-called relive box that allows users to experience anew almost any moment from their past, to “The Five-Pound Burrito,” the tale of a man aiming to build the biggest burrito in town, the twelve stories in this collection represent a whole new way of looking at the world from one of the best storytellers at work today.

The Relive Box is an exuberant, linguistically dazzling book from someone the Boston Globe has said is “such a good storyteller it will probably take, as in Alice Munro’s case, the Nobel Prize or retirement for us to realize what tremendous talent has lain right in front of our noses.”

Quotes & Awards

  • “Fans and new readers alike will appreciate Boyle’s droll humor, eye for detail, and seemingly inexhaustible imagination.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Boyle’s substantial collection is funny, disarming, and crushing, haunting, and beautiful.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Boyle makes the incredible credible through detail, and his narrative voices convincing through rhythm and attitude. He can be funny, touching, or both, as when his characters face aging with characteristically fervent resistance.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Boyle has written more than 100 stories and won the 2014 Rea Award for the Short Story. These twelve pieces exhibit Boyle’s entertainingly off-kilter view of the world.”
