5.0 von 5 Sternen SHORT STORIES ARE MUCH BETTER THAN HIS NOVELS
T.C. Boyle is one of my favorite modern short-story writers (William Trevor is another) and you can drop in on any of these and be swept into his quirky worldview and be out in less than 20 minutes. The same can't be said for his overwrought, baggy novels but thank goodness for this collection that keeps it altogether (now I can throw out all those paperback editions...

1.0 von 5 Sternen Montecito's best novelist & short story writer
As a pedestrian writer who finished my first T.C Boyle novel, after running across him by accident @ the Miami International Book Fair, it came as a blitz when I left the Cold Spring Tavern and stopped at a place that said T.C. is there twice a week on average.
Tonight, Valentine's day, I took my wife (actually she found the place) to an Asian-fusion restaurant on...

T.C. Boyle is one of my favorite modern short-story writers (William Trevor is another) and you can drop in on any of these and be swept into his quirky worldview and be out in less than 20 minutes. The same can't be said for his overwrought, baggy novels but thank goodness for this collection that keeps it altogether (now I can throw out all those paperback editions of his short fiction). There are too many wonderful stories to choose a favorite here but here's a suggestion for prospective buyers. Go to a favorite bookstore that let's you sit and read, pick any story in this volume and read it and if you like it, go home and order it here. THE REST IS EASY because T.C. Boyle's a very consistent writer of short fiction and if you like one, you'll like most all of 'em.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Faszination des Grauens, 18. September 2008
Rezension bezieht sich auf: T. C. Boyle Stories (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Der ganz normale Wahnsinn des menschlichen Zusammenlebens mit all seinen Abgründen in drei Akten (Love, Death, Everything in Between) verteilt auf ca. 50 Kurzgeschichten, knapp 700 Seiten, in Englisch. In der T.C. Boyle eigenen Erzählkunst, kann man sich das Geschehen bildlich vorstellen. Dabei sind die Ereignisse, die seine Characteren durchleben (oder durch-sterben) müssen manchmal so heftig, dass man das Buch zur Überwindung des Schocks beiseite legen muss. Aber nur, um es kurze Zeit später wieder aufzuschlagen, um der Faszination des Grauens erneut in die Augen zu blicken.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Retrospective of the BEST of T.C., 20. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: T. C. Boyle Stories (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I've been reading T.C.Boyles short stories for years, and I have never discovered books that I can read so many times without inflicting bordom on myself (still not tired of any of these). They are like CD's that can become glued to the CD player and no one seems to care. This collection just wraps it all up.
Sigh...if only Thomas Pynchon could write such short 'n' sweet stories...I might actually understand him.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must-have book for your contemporary fiction collection, 3. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: T. C. Boyle Stories (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I discovered T.C. Boyle four or five years ago by accident, and a very happy accident it was.
While I love all his books ("Water Music" still makes me laugh until I cry), I have always had a love for anyone who can consistently write good short stories, and his are some of the best.
This book collects them all into loose categories instead of chronologies, which is far better. And while the "Love" collection starts the book, the most unusual and funniest stories are to be found in the "Everything Else In Between" category at the end of the book.
If you enjoy reading authors that continue to surprise you, read T. Coraghessan Boyle.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Trying to even things out, 10. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: T. C. Boyle Stories (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I am trying to even things out. I have not yet finished the entire collection of stories, but the ones I have read are quite good. As I write this there is only one other review displayed here, and that guy gave T.C. a single star. Why? His review didn't seem that harsh? Because I have not finished the book, I can only rate it a 4 star effort. But I give it 5 stars because that last wacko can't add, and I want to even things out.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lucky few if you are reading this review, 9. Februar 2000

Rezension bezieht sich auf: T.C. Boyle Stories (Taschenbuch)
Well, there's a lot of people when you mention T.C. Boyle say who? That's bad for them cuz everyone should read this book.
It seems to me, other than giving a 5 star buy this collection of short stories rating, that I want to mention two things: 1)T.C. Boyle writes like a modern-day Raymond Carver, only less bitter and 2)hes's good at situational fiction -- that is, he puts his characters in unique places(a safari,etc) or unique circumstances and lets them deal with it.
It's a unique approach, and I hope that you buy this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Modern stylism at its best, 6. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: T. C. Boyle Stories (Gebundene Ausgabe)
There's no equal to T.C. Boyle when it comes to modern American style. You can tell a story any way you want, but this volume of his shorts shows that you can't do it any better than him. It's frightening the way these words seem to drip off his pen. Try his longer fiction, too -- Budding Prospects, or, for starters, Road to Wellville.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Montecito's best novelist & short story writer, 15. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: T. C. Boyle Stories (Gebundene Ausgabe)
As a pedestrian writer who finished my first T.C Boyle novel, after running across him by accident @ the Miami International Book Fair, it came as a blitz when I left the Cold Spring Tavern and stopped at a place that said T.C. is there twice a week on average.
Tonight, Valentine's day, I took my wife (actually she found the place) to an Asian-fusion restaurant on 23rd St. Obviously that has nothing to do with T.C.'s stories, at least yet.
T.C. is a little like Mark Twain. It's cool to find someone who enjoys writing as much as this guy does.
He should tour the Elmore Leonard Coast of Florida. From my point of view, along with Tom Wolfe, John Irving and the guy that wrote "Billy Bathgate" (whose name escapes me even though I know where he goes for egg cremes in Surfside...and it isn't Issac Singer)T.C. has a very cool view of how to tell a story. This guy sure does know how to write!
I'll read this guy's stories the way I listen to Niel Young songs...or read Sam Shephard stories...carefully.
