Summary (From the publisher):

Included in this collection are the whimsical tales for which Boyle is famous, including "Swept Away," which tells of a female ornithologist who falls in love on the blustery island of Unst, and "The Kind Assassin," about a bored and loveless radio shock jock who sets the world record for most continuous hours without sleep—and who may never sleep again.

In the title story, a young man must contend with a vicious feral cat from Africa that he has won in a bar bet. And who could resist the power of "Dogology," about a young woman in suburban New England who becomes so obsessed with man's best friend that she begins to lose her own identity to a pack of strays, of "Chicxulub," a nerve-shattering tale of collision, whether it be that of a young woman with a car or of huge objects from outer space slamming into the planet.
