'"After the Plague" is a formidable achievement. It is hip, slick and witty'. - "Sunday Telegraph". ' A mercurial craftsman mustering some of his most assured work'. - "FT". 'Boyle has the ability to create devastating situations, lighten them with a satirical gleam and then twist them into the kind of joke that makes your stomach hurt'. - "Daily Mail". 'Boyle writes so beautifully it always feels natural, never forced'. - "Guardian". Maverick, unpredictable and accomplished, T.C. Boyle has been called the 'trickster of American letters'.
