The Human Fly and Other Stories
by T. C. Boyle




Overview -
New York Times bestselling author T.C. Boyle speaks to a brand-new audience in this anthology of his classic, richly imagined short fiction about teenagers.

His many, 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 combine to make his a singular voice. Here is a collection of classic Boyle stories about teenagers (including the O. Henry Award-winning The Love of My Life) that will speak directly to them, as well as to anyone who was once a teenager. Includes the previously uncollected story, Almost Shooting an Elephant.

Boyle repeatedly demonstrates his masterful grasp of human nature, exposing his characters' foibles and eccentricities.--Publishers Weekly
