December 2, 1948

"Tooth and Claw" is a short story by T. C. Boyle (born on December 2, 1948) and features a guy caring for an feral cat. It is one story in a volume by the same name, published in 2005. Boyle's sixth book of short stories came after his acclaimed novel "The Inner Circle" (2004) based on Alfred Kinsey.

He has received many awards, but not enough.
