This new collection of short stories from T. C. Boyle finds him at his mercurial best. Inventive, wickedly funny, sometimes disturbing, these are stories about drop-outs, deadbeats, and kooks. Take the man who shares his apartment with a wildcat won in a drunken bet; the drive-time shock jock hallucinating from sleep deprivation for a publicity stunt; the suburban woman who joins a pack of dogs, eating rabbits and baying at the moon. With a unique deftness of touch and a keen eye for the telling detail, Boyle has mapped the strange underworld of America.

Recensioner i media

'A master of structure, his stories beautifully engineered machines which he spray-paints with graffiti' Independent 'One of the most intelligent and well-respected writers of his generation, continually flexing a literary muscle most writers don't even know they have' The Times 'Whether Boyle is breaking your heart or making you laugh, you just don't care because he is so darned good at it ... Boyle has the voice to make you smile, make you care and make you hate yourself in the morning for being taken in by such a smooth storyteller' San Francisco Chronicle 'Boyle, a virtuoso craftsman, is one of the reasons readers love short stories ... inside Tooth and Claw are Boyle's trademark taut writing, immediate intimacy, vivid language' E. Annie Proulx, Washington Post
