    When T C Boyle wants to write a brilliant story, he can write a brilliant story Greasy Lake and Rara Avis are top shelf, knock out stories brilliantly conceived and constructed full blown LITERATURE More often than not though, Boyle doesn t set his sights so high Usually, he s just having fun, scratching out stories about Lassie, about a 56 0 drubbing on the football field, about eating champions and daredevils, even a clownish parody homage about a drunken revel with Kerouac, Ginsberg, Cassady and Burroughs who, sat there like a corpse, his irises drying out and his lips clamped tight round the little nugget of his mouth It s an inconsistent col...

    I ve only a few of the stories so far But I want to talk about each story individually So prepare for a long, annoying review.The Human Fly Kind of cute, kind of funny, kind of sad I liked it The Champ Probably the only story I ve ever read about a competitive eating competition Boyle clearly wanted to poke fun at make an omage to wresting Muhammad Ali It was. silly Didn t really care for it.The Hit Man This is about The Hit Man at various stages in his life Best line The Hit man does not like peas They re too difficult to balance on the fork This story is divided into a bunch of short fragments with different titles the previous quote was from, and was the entire, section Peas This is also silly Everything this guy writes is silly I m kind of fond of this one, though.Achates McNeil This had pretty interesting premise a kid has a famous author dad and he hates it But nothing really happened He did bang a crazy chick, but I don t know what the point of that was Also, in this day and age, I can t really think of many authors who are THAT awe inspiring to the general public I mean, besides like JK Rowling, I don t think any author is THAT famous or well recognized I didn t buy it I thought the Human Fly story was realistic The Love of My Life Well, that was depressing And based on a true story This kind of thing happens all the time, I know But in reading the authors notes on this story, he actually based it on a specific true ...

    A group of thirteen short stories that seemed to be unified by a common theme of violence In each story somebody acts violently or is the recipient of some violence Some of the violence is man vs man, some is man vs nature, and some is man vs himself The violence is not graphic, however These are representative of some of his earlier works, and each bears Boyle s signature twisted view of the world Several have rudimentary ecological references that figure in at least one of his later, full length works A Friend of the Earth These are not meant as erudite literary masterpieces, lending themselves to be deconstructed and analyzed, but as stories that entertain And entertain, they do This reader enjoyed each and every one Some bore ...

    The I read T.C Boyle s work, the I enjoy his style, his language, and just everything about his work I found all of the stories marvelously done The only one that dragged for me was 56 0, but I think it s mainly because I understand football as much as I understand bioengineering There wasn t anything wrong with the story itself I just didn t have a place to connect The other stories, though, I did Definitely an enjoyable collection for those who like his work and a...

    Don t know much about Boyle but I after seeing him interviewed on Overheard with Evan Smith, I was curious, and I thought a book of short stories might be a good introduction.Enjoyed the collection, and, though none of them blew me away, I plan to move on to one of his novels.

    My husband found this on the bargain rack at the Brookline Booksmith the one outside where all the books are 1 I love T.C Boyle but I wasn t sure I d like this one because of the weird Sci Fi drawing of the human fly in the title I thought it might be a little too out there for me And the first couple of stories were But there were also some real gems that kept me thinking about them and that even managed to appear in my dreams I m talking about Rara Avis with it s haunting last line, and The Love of My Life about a teenage couple deeply in love until a life altering event pits them against each other That story came from a news piece Boyle had read He kept to the facts of the story but explored the whys that news articles often leave out This is the kind of writing I love the exploration of something that otherwise seems almost inexplicable It turns out a lot of his stories start out as items from the morning paper There are plenty of funny stories and great satire here Not ...

    From reading this anthology of short stories, I decided that Boyle is completely overrated However, my opinion could change if I ever get around to reading anything else that s he written His writing is good, but the content is pretty unoriginal Of a...

    Boyle s novels can be too much for me, too much of too much, too satirical, too over the top These short stories are perfect little gems They are well painted, richly imagined, and mostly wonderfully weird His satire is still everywhere...
