A dynamic new collection from one of our most original storytellers: satirical, surreal and very much of the moment. In these stories, T. C.

Boyle focuses hisunerring eye on humanity's relationship with nature, and the unintended consequences of our efforts to control it. The prize-winning `Are We Not Men?' reflects on the impact of new gene-editing technologies while `The Relive Box' parodies our obsession with electronic games. In `She's the Bomb', a young woman waits on her graduation day, heart in mouth, for an explosive event.

A burrito-seller has a killer business idea in `The Five-Pound Burrito', but learns that success comes at a price. An Italian couple moves south for a fresh start in `The Argentine Ant', but finds that paradise holds a nasty sting. And in the chilling `The Designee', a lonely widower can't believe his luck when he receives a mysterious letter from England.

In electric prose T. C. Boyle explores myriad facets of society: greed and excess, parenthood and responsibility, the digital world and the way we understand our mortality.

Roaming unrestrainedly throughthe present and near future, he inhabits his characters' minds with a ventriloquist's flair, skewering human motivations and revealing us to ourselves with empathy and wry humour.
