Inhaltsangabe

While T. C. Boyle is known as one of our greatest American novelists, he is also an acknowledged master of the short story and is perhaps at his funniest, his most moving, and his most surprising in the short form. In The Relive Box, Boyle's sharp wit and rich imagination combine with a penetrating social consciousness to produce raucous, poignant, and expansive short stories defined by an inimitable voice.

From the collection's title story, featuring a Halcom X1520 Relive Box that allows users to experience anew almost any moment from their past, to "The Five-Pound Burrito", the tale of a man aiming to build the biggest burrito in town, the 12 stories in this collection speak to the humor, the pathos, and the struggle that is part of being human while relishing the whimsy of wordplay and the power of a story well told. In stories that span a variety of styles and genres, Boyle addresses the enduring concerns of the human mind and heart while taking on timely social concerns. The Relive Box is an exuberant, linguistically dazzling effort from a "vibrant sensibility fully engaged with American society" (New York Times).

My TC Boyle is in the stories

I'll keep this one short: The Relive Box broke my heart. Meaning the story that goes by that title and starts just another collection of incredible experiences - read by the author no less. I never liked all of his novels which in my opinion is a reflection of the true artist: I can't go all the places he can visit. Still, his shorts get me every single time. The Relive Box stands out to me, I suppose that you won't experience it my way. Still: Get this one and dig in.
