While T.C. Boyle is known as one of our greatest American novelists, he is also an acknowledged master of the short story and is perhaps at his funniest, his most moving, and his most surprising in the short form. In The Relive Box, Boyle's sharp wit and rich imagination combine with a penetrating social consciousness to produce raucous, poignant, and expansive short stories defined by an inimitable voice.

From the collection's title story, featuring a Halcom X1520 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 speak to the humor, the pathos, and the struggle that is part of being human while relishing the whimsy of wordplay and the power of a story well told. In stories that span a variety of styles and genres, Boyle addresses the enduring concerns of the human mind and heart while taking on timely social concerns. The Relive Box is an exuberant, linguistically dazzling effort from a "vibrant sensibility fully engaged with American society." (The New York Times)

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.”
