In her review of T.C. Boyle's short story collection Without a Hero, Lorrie Moore wrote in The New York Times: "Mr. Boyle can write like an angel... if at times a caustic, gum-chewing one." Litquake is proud to welcome this master of fiction to his first festival appearance, celebrating the release of his new collection, T.C. Boyle Stories II. This 950-page volume includes 14 new stories - including previously released materials - in a collection ripe with mordant wit, emotional power, and off-the-rails imagination. He is also appearing for the paperback release of his novel San Miguel, a historical epic about two families in Southern California. He will discuss his literary career, the source of his inspiration, and more.
T.C. Boyle is author of 14 novels, including Drop City, which was a finalist for the National Book Award, and World’s End, winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award. He has also written nine short story collections. He lives near Santa Barbara.
