Description - Descent of Man by T. C Boyle

In seventeen slices of life that defy the expected and launch us into the absurd, Boyle offers his unique view of the world. A primate-center researcher becomes romantically involved with a chimp; a Norse poet overcomes bard-block; collectors compete to snare the ancient Aztec beer can, Quetzalcoatl Lite; and Lassie abandons Timmy for a randy coyote. Dark humor, delirious fantasy, and surreal satire come together in this collection that brilliantly expresses just what the "evolution" of mankind has wrought.

Buy Descent of Man by T. C Boyle from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
