Description:

His many and varied novels are part of the American literary landscape-but one of the best ways to appreciate T.C. Boyle is through his richly imagined short fiction. Boyle's kaleidoscopic humor and wit, his keen, unforgiving take on American life, and his all-too-human protagonists all contribute to making his a unique voice. Here is a collection of classic Boyle stories (including the O. Henry Award-winning "The Love of My Life") that will speak directly to teenagers-and those who remember their teenage selves.
