"...Few authors in America write with such sheer love of story, language, and imagination as T. Coraghessan Boyle, and that is perhaps nowhere more evident than in his inventive, wickedly funny, and widely-praised short stories. Over the course of the past twenty-five years, Boyle has built up a body of short fiction that has, in its range, richness, and exuberance, distinguished him as one of today's premier practitioners of the form. This volume gathers together all the work from Boyle's four previous collections -- as well as seven new tales previously unpublished in book form -- for a virtual feast of the short story."

George Bryan 'Beau' Brummell was smoothing down his first starched collar, young Ludwig van Beethoven, beetle-browed and twenty-four, was wowing them in Vienna with his Piano Concerto no.2, and Ned Rise was drinking Strip-Me-Naked with Nan Punt and Sally Sebum at the Pig & Pox Tavern in Maiden Lane."
