Greasy Lake & other stories

Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:
Mythic and realistic, farcical and tragic, The Washington Post Book World says these masterful stories mark T. Coraghessan Boyle's development from "a prodigy's audacity to something that packs even more of a wallop: mature artistry." They cover everything, from a terrifying encounter between a bunch of suburban adolescents and a murderous, drug-dealing biker, to a touching though doomed love affair between Eisenhower and Nina Khrushchev. "Boyle is in absolute command," says The Detroit News, "wholly at home and always funny." Book jacket.
