T.C. Boyle


Blue Skies

Welcome to America. On the east coast, homes are being swallowed by the ocean; on the west coast, California is engulfed with wildfire. But for one family, the impending environmental disaster is the least of their worries. Party girl Cat just impulse-purchased a snake; her pious brother Cooper is wrestling with a tic bite; and their mom Ottilie has resorted to cooking with crickets. Everyone is drinking too much - and the bugs seems to be disappearing. It seems as if it's anything but blue skies ahead ... A delightfully dark comedy of manners about family life at the end of the world, this is a masterful new adventure from one of the America's great comic writers.
