Reading TC Boyle's writing is like savoring a glass of great wine -- you don't want it to ever end.
T.C. Boyle does three things very well in this book: he creates interesting characters, he tells a story made up of stories and, as always, he's a master of words.

First of all -- I had no idea what to expect. Bought it at a whim. And I was pleasantly surprised.
