On the strength of books like World's End and The Tortilla Curtain, T.C. Boyle has long been known as an accomplished novelist, yet he is perhaps at his funniest and his most surprising in the short story form. From the title piece, 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, these dozen stories find Boyle in exceptional form.
"Boyle's substantial collection is funny, disarming, and crushing, haunting and beautiful."—Booklist (starred review)
