Few authors in America write with such sheer love of story, language, and imagination as T.C. Boyle, and nowhere is that passion more evident than in his inventive, wickedly funny, and widely praised short stories. In After the Plague, Boyle speaks of contemporary social issues in a range of emotional keys. The sixteen stories gathered here address everything from air rage to abortion doctors to first love and its consequences. The collection ends with the brilliant title story, a whimsical and imaginative vision of a disease-ravaged Earth. Presented with characteristic wit and intelligence, these stories will delight readers in search of the latest news of the chaotic, disturbing, and achingly beautiful world in which we live.
"Boyle's imagination and zeal for storytelling are in top form here."—Publishers Weekly

The narrator brings such emotion and depth is brought to this already amazing collection. He really draws you into the stories and clearly understands the beauty of this writing. Absolutely worth listening to and keeping. I have already listened to it twice straight through. the stories themselves are sometimes painful and shocking, yet deal with powerful social issues. They are related in a manner that is at once graceful and gritty. A complete masterpiece. Bravo! **p
