Boyle authors "Mud Between My Toes"

Feb. 7, 2005

KALAMAZOO--"Mud Between My Toes," a novella of 25 humorous essays by Western Michigan University's Toby Boyle, has been released by PublishAmerica and is available through major online book retailers and selected Kalamazoo-area bookstores.

"Mud Between My Toes" is described as a "menagerie of outrageous silliness" in the publisher's summary of the book. "Toby Boyle dissects the peculiarities of life with a sharp, satirical scalpel. No one is safe, from aliens to Yeti, automobiles to zoo sex, and everything in between. He may have an obsessive fascination with Julie Andrews, but that is just the tip of this hilarious iceberg."

Boyle is a systems programmer and part-time instructor at WMU. He receive a bachelor's degree in political science in 1984 and a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing in 1998, both from WMU.

"Mud Between My Toes" is available in paperback for $12.95 through amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.
