Wild Child, and Other Stories

By T. C. Boyle
Narrated by T. C. Boyle / 10 hours 22 minutes

The fourteen stories in this rich new collection display T. C. Boyle's astonishing range and imaginative muscle. Nature is the dominant player in many of these stories, whether in the form of a catastrophic mudslide that allows a cynic to reclaim his humanity or in Boyle's powerfully original retelling of the story of Victor, the feral boy who was captured running naked through the forests of Napoleonic France-a moving and magical investigation of what it means to be human. Other tales range from the drama of a man who spins Homeric lies in order to stop going to work to the sad comedy of a child born to Mexican street vendors who is unable to feel pain. Brilliant, incisive, and always engaging, Boyle's short stories showcase the mischievous humor and socially conscious sensibility that have made him one of the most acclaimed writers of our time.
