What Mrs N's Been Reading - The Human Fly and Other Stories

Took a little side road with my reading recently and picked up T.C. Boyle's The Human Fly and Other Stories, a collection of short stories. Boyle has written several books, in addition to his many short stories, which have been published in The New Yorker, Harper's, GQ, and many other magazines. This collection is definitely for older teens and adults. It covers a broad range of topics, from the early spread of AIDS in Africa, to teenage infanticide, to an impromptu elephant hunt in India, and more. Well-written, but again, due to subject matter, definitely not for the younger end of the teen age-range.
