The Dream Lover: Short Stories

Couverture
Bloomsbury, 2008 - 355 pages
Funny, moving and sharply observed, these stories are confirmation of Boyd's status as one of English fiction's finest writers. Here are twenty-two gripping tales told in bold, distinct voices from Brazil to Africa and from Nice to Hollywood. This eclectic omnibus, previously published as the collections On the Yankee Stadium and The Destinty of Nathalie 'X', is a must-read for any lover of the short story.
