I Walk Between the Raindrops: Stories

This stellar collection is an essential purchase for all public library collections. Recommended for those that like grit and good stories.

Outside Looking In

While it may be hard to get behind many of the deeply flawed characters, there is much to learn and enjoy here, as Boyle takes us deep inside the lives of Leary and his convention-bashing acolytes, offering a brisk read that provides much food for thought. Boyle fans will enjoy. [See Prepub Alert, 8/15/18.]

The Terranauts

Beneath the high-tech sheen is a rather old-fashioned theme: how idealistic enterprises can crumble owing to the foibles and fragility of human nature. This is one of Boyle's best—and quite possibly one of the best of the year. [See Prepub Alert, 4/3/16.]

The Harder They Come

Inspired by a true story (and also echoing recent events in Pennsylvania), Boyle tellingly explores the anger, paranoia, and violence lurking in the shadowlands of the American psyche. A powerful and profoundly unsettling tale. [See Prepub Alert, 9/22/14.]
