Fruits 1One of my favorite short stories is “Rapture of the Deep” about Jacques Cousteau’s french chef, who foments a revolt against the sea captain because he’s sick of cooking “poisson, poisson, poisson.” It’s one of those I turn to often when searching for inspiration. T.C.Boyle invents such a great narrative voice, it carries the tale. Have a listen to a professional reading at Selected Shorts.
