While in Paris to promote his newly released collection of short stories, 25 Histoires d'amour (Editions Grasset), T. Coraghessan Boyle met with a French journalist, Gisèle Galante, from Paris Match and discussed his life and work. The article did not appear on the Paris Match website, but it is reproduced here to illustrate the concept behind the grouping of the stories (some of which have yet to be published in the United States in book form) and to provide insight into the author's background and perspective.
