Wild Child: Stories by T. Coraghessan Boyle

This absorbing collection of stories from the prolific author of The Women and The Road to Wellville is an uneven, but worthwhile read. With story topics ranging from California mudslides to a boy who cannot feel pain, this collection covers a lot of subject territory! What doesn't vary, however, is the consistently good writing and solid tone that joins this assortment of stories together. My favorite story was one titled "The Lie" that tells the tale of a man who tells his co-workers that his baby died to get out of going to work!
