Boils: Tales of Tainted Mothers Milk Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Boils: Tales of Tainted Mothers Milk

Billy Boyles is every man's toilet. His life is one of perpetual humilia-tion and loneliness. Thanks to an enemy bazooka in Viet Nam, Billy came home a eunuch. Now he is covered with gigantic boils. Hence, an untouchable subjected to every human abuse. But then something very strange happens. His boils begin singing to him. They promise to make his life better. He meets Rosy who also has boils, and she tells him to sing back to them and he will be pleasantly surprised. He does and he is! All thirteen of his boils hatch out into little Billy clones. These pint-size Barbie Dolls (actually Ken dolls) are more than anatomically correct, and determined to set the world right for Billy. Revenge? Payback? Compensation? All tiny little understatements that can't begin to de-scribe the savage, gory, and completely wacky carnage they set out to wreak for Billy.
