" my world, he’s still T. Coraghessan Boyle."

Beth of the blog A Cup of Coffey, recently posted an entry titled Mark, T.C., and Me in which she was all giddy about finally having a chance to meet TCB at a reception and reading in Atlanta. But from her posting, it is clear that she, too, is yet another reader who yearns to have the Coraghessan restored to his name!
I know he goes by T.C. these days, and I know it’s not his birth name, but I love saying "Coraghessan." I’ve often fantasized about being his girlfriend, just so I could coo "Coraghessan" in his ear. So, in my world, he’s still T. Coraghessan Boyle.

[Growwwwl. Go get 'em girl!] And you -- get a load of all those banana references!
