The inimitable and acclaimed writer returns to Live Talks LA with his newest and fourteenth novel, San Miguel 

See a book trailer for T.C. Boyle’s San Miguel.

Boyle’s latest, San Miguel is a soaring historical narrative about two families trying to start new lives on a windswept, near-desolate island just off the coast of southern California.  Publishers Weekly says, “Boyle’s epic saga of struggle, loss, and resilience tackles Pacific pioneer history with literary verve….”

Hear the prolific Boyle read from and discuss this latest book, along with his writing process, and his thoughts on living the literary life.

“Each day,” he says, “I try to enter another world and stay there until my mind gets fuzzy and I have to quit work till the next day.  In the interim, whether I’m sitting miles out in the Sierras with a book , doing yard work, cooking dinner or pouring a glass of wine, the artistic questions and choices of the story or novel stay with me until I can sit down again at the computer the following morning and move forward.”
