A feral boy is captured and 'civilised' in the Languedoc region. A young woman is hired to look after a cloned dog that cost its owners $250,000. A widower in a self-satisfied suburb engulfs his loneliness in a sea of rats. A weary city GP is baffled by a Mexican boy, the son of a taco-seller, who can feel no pain. A junior film editor invents the death of his own daughter because he can't face going in to work. A vindictive teenager with a gasoline fixation runs into trouble with his Japanese neighbour. Two washed-up crooners in 1950s New York get creative while recording a schmaltzy Christmas special. In this beguiling new collection of stories, T. C. Boyle, one of the world's greatest storytellers, explores the improbable, the tragic, the allegorical and the altogether ordinary.

'A master of structure, his stories beautifully engineered machines which he spray-paints with graffiti.' * <I>Independent</i> * '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.' * <i>The Times</i> * 'A terrifically skilled writer of short stories, able to enlist your sympathy and enthusiasm for his characters and their predicaments within a few sentences.' * <I>Daily Telegraph</i> * 'A writer who can take you anywhere' * <I>New York Times</i> *
