9780140077810: Greasy Lake and Other Stories (Contemporary American Fiction)

Mythic and realistic, farcical and tragic, The Washington Post Book World says these masterful stories mark T. Coraghessan Boyle's development from "a prodigy's audacity to something that packs even more of a wallop: mature artistry." They cover everything, from a terrifying encounter between a bunch of suburban adolescents and a murderous, drug-dealing biker, to a touching though doomed love affair between Eisenhower and Nina Khruschev.

About the Author:

T. C. Boyle is the author of eleven novels, including World's End (winner of the PEN/FaulknerAward), Drop City (a New York Times bestseller and finalist for the National Book Award), and The Inner Circle. His most recent story collections are Tooth and Claw and The Human Fly and Other Stories.

From Publishers Weekly:

As he portrays environmentalists, surrogate mothers and drug dealers, "Boyle proves himself in this second story collection truly a master of that genre. Wide-ranging in subject and variously comic, tragic, poignant and horrific, the stories are all compounds of imagination, vitality and scrupulous craft," judged PW.
