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

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This collection is uproarious and unforgiving: ‘She Wasn’t Soft,’ the title of one story, says it all. If Boyle finds dark humor in the lives of peeping toms, he also writes with tenderness about a widow waiting ‘for something she can’t name.’” New Yorker
“Boyle’s imagination and zeal for storytelling are in top form here, making this collection a smash.” Publishers Weekly
“If you like Boyle, you won’t be able to resist.” Kirkus Reviews
“Observant, empathic, and fresh, Boyle’s stories affirm literature’s vital and abiding role in our culture.” Booklist (starred review)
