    review Descent of Man Stories 103 This 1979 collection gathers together early work by Boyle all of it imaginative Even in a slim volume there are SO MANY stories 17 to be precise and they are all so different from each other Some I loved; some were meh I was tempted to leave a few unread but since that would mean I couldn’t count this towards my year total I forced myself through them all even though it took me nearly nine months Standouts include “The Champ” about a

review Descent of Man Stories 103 read ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ê T. Coraghessan Boyle T. Coraghessan Boyle Ê 3 characters In seventeen slices of life that defy the expected and launch us into the absurd TC Boyle offers his uniue view of the world A primate center researcher becomes romant I rate this so highly because reading it was such an experience for me I stumbled upon it in Morgenstern s Booksellers in Bloomington IN the summer I stayed in town to take classes between junior and senior year of college I would take the bus to work at Video World and if it got me there early I would hang out in the bookstore a few storefronts down before work One day I picked up this book and started to read a story called A Women s Restaurant The story is classic TC Boyle complete with a slightly off but instantly sympathetic main character who through a series of events that wear on him over time goes a bit nuts and starts behaving in a totally subversive manner by the end of the story That s part of what I love about Boyle he creates these characters who seem to be holding it together on the outside but in reality have a very tenuous grip on themselves that they always lose by the end And instead of just dismissing them as crazy you have to admit that you understand how they got there Anyway the story was funny and dark and unexpected and exceedingly well written and I was hooked For the next few weeks I would take the early bus to work and read one short story before clocking in I don t know why I didn t just buy the book It could have been that I was broke and it was 10 or so 10 could get me through an entire weekend when I was in college or it could have just been that I loved savoring it doling out one story at a time to myself throughout the hot slow summer There wasn t much else to look forward to about going to work at Video WorldI eventually did buy a copy and lent it to a boyfriend I met the year after I graduated And that bastard Never gave it back

review Descent of Man Stories 103 read ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ê T. Coraghessan Boyle T. Coraghessan Boyle Ê 3 characters 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 wroug 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
