If the River Was Whiskey: Stories

by T. C. Boyle

In sixteen stories, T. Coraghessan Boyle illuminates a
comic --- yet tragic --- world. He introduces us to a death-defying
stuntman who rides across the country strapped to the axle of a
Peterbilt, and a woman so disease-conscious that she requires full
body protection in moments of intimacy. He reveals the extremes of
the human condition in stories about a teen-age sociopath and a man
who sells his soul to the devil.
