Montecito's best novelist & short story writer
am 15. Februar 1999
As a pedestrian writer who finished my first T.C Boyle novel, after running across him by accident @ the Miami International Book Fair, it came as a blitz when I left the Cold Spring Tavern and stopped at a place that said T.C. is there twice a week on average.
Tonight, Valentine's day, I took my wife (actually she found the place) to an Asian-fusion restaurant on 23rd St. Obviously that has nothing to do with T.C.'s stories, at least yet.
T.C. is a little like Mark Twain. It's cool to find someone who enjoys writing as much as this guy does.
He should tour the Elmore Leonard Coast of Florida. From my point of view, along with Tom Wolfe, John Irving and the guy that wrote "Billy Bathgate" (whose name escapes me even though I know where he goes for egg cremes in Surfside...and it isn't Issac Singer)T.C. has a very cool view of how to tell a story. This guy sure does know how to write!
I'll read this guy's stories the way I listen to Niel Young songs...or read Sam Shephard stories...carefully.
