More Boyle on the Train

I love sharing T.C. Boyle's work with others.

Today I read "Swept Away," the second story in "Tooth and Claw".

In an interview, Boyle described the impetus of the story:

"A very whimsical piece based on the notion, I had read about the windiest
town on earth, it's in the Shetland Islands and cats blow by, so I wrote my
flying cat story called 'Swept Away' ".

The story won the O.Henry Award in 2003 (an award he has been honored with five times, and counting...).

Of course, I can't find this on the web to share with everyone.

You'll have to buy the book!
