Descent of Man Stories

Or a randy coyote Dark humor delirious fantasy and surreal satire come together in this collection that brilliantly expresses just what the evolution of mankind has wrought.. TC Boyle s two collections of the collections of his stories Volumes 1 2 might be desert island books for me Somehow Stories One was missing two stories from Descent of Man so I had to get this book separately to read those two EarthMoon and uetzalcoatl Lite I think all other stories from Boyle are collected in either volume one or two I love to read a couple of Boyle s stories whenever I have a Boyle craving But I could also read his entire oeuvre all in a row and then start reading from the beginning again Boyle is a powerhouse of stories and I think he should be read by all readers He is one of the smartest writers He s one of the only writers who consistently uses words I ve never seen It doesn t hurt that I m a fan of many of his influences There is not a bad story in this bunch If a story isn t perfect overall on a sentence level it is a joy to read anyway The stories are full rich detailed and cover a wide range of cultures times and places I especially loved The Big Garage The Champ Green Hell Descent of Man John Barleycorn Lives De Rerum Natura uetzalcoatl Lite We Are Norsemen and The Second Swimming I ve heard that even while touring for his new book release he MUST be writing It is essential for him to survive as a person I can t see his writing being bad from that fact alone He loves writing and I love reading his writing The early stories are phenomenal here If his writing gets better from this collection as his writing career progresses and I m not sure how it could I m in for some amazing writing I m a Boyle fan for life

    Funny haunting surreal At times T C Boyle is trying a little too hard to be Kafka in these stories While that aspiration often than not comes across as flat and awkward the majority of these stories depict an exceptionally creative im
