TC Boyle is an amazing wordsmith, and I've always found his short stories to be full of vivid description, and if the point and plot are not always clear, the journey to the story's end is always enjoyable. This audiobook is read by the author, whose tone matches very well the world-weary, self-absorbed view of many of these stories' narrators. Sometimes, however, my mind wandered while listening, and at times I wished I was reading this instead of listening to it, so I could go back and listen again to what I missed (hard to do with an ipod!) By far the best story, in my opinion, is "Chicxulub", although there are several other memorable stories. At the end of this audiobook is a fascinating interview with the author, in which he talks about his process of writing -- a neat "extra".
