A man falls from a roof whilst spying on his beautiful widowed neighbour. A newly married couple seeking enlightenment take a three year vow of silence and move to a yurt in the Arizona desert. A handsome young man works in real-estate by day, but has a far more sinister profession by night. An elderly woman is determined to return to her home in the countryside, despite the knowledge that in doing so she may be signing her own death warrant. Giant men are kept in cages to ensure their nightly service to their country. A man develops an unhealthy interest in his recently deceased reclusive rock-star neighbour. And on Christmas day at the San Francisco Zoo a terrible and tragic event occurs... T.C. Boyle Stories II comprises three later volumes of short fiction - After the Plague, Tooth and Claw and Wild Child - along with a new collection, A Death in Kitchawank. These fifty-eight stories explore the mundane, the devastating, the figurative and the implausible in a masterful and enthralling collection. T.C. Boyle is a writer at the height of his craft.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This vast volume contains some of the best, funniest, bleakest, most unsettling short stories I've ever read ... Incredibly good - a book to savour * The Times *
Complicated characters, like twists, are among the orthodox pleasures on offer here ... You don't feel cheated, reading Boyle - while the head knows there's manipulation and artifice, the heart thumps * Observer *
An important book that contains revelation, tension and beauty -- Philip Womack * Daily Telegraph *
Boyle has a talent for describing events we may never experience with an arresting matter-of-factness. There is a thrill to this, and to not knowing where he will take us next -- Chris Power * Guardian *
A sort of Frank Zappa of American letters ... Like the Beat writers before him, Boyle documents American life in the underbelly ... Boyle is incapable of writing a boring sentence ... he is a master of the short story form -- Ian Thomson * Financial Times *
The master of edgy short fiction * William Leith, Evening Standard *
