the official international movement to bring back the beguiling middle name of author T.C. Boyle to all of his dust jackets and book covers

screenscribbler's favorite TCB tale:

A new member of the official TCB messageboard tells this story -- another one for the archives!
[S]ome years ago, I was in Vroman's, and a man was asking a clerk for a book he had heard reviewed on the radio. He didn't know the title and said, "the author's name was something like 'Corrugated Doyle.'" The clerk was utterly clueless, so I leaned over the counter after the man had left and said quietly to her, "I think he means 'T. Coraghessan Boyle.'" I ended up going out with the clerk a few times, and that's pretty much the only thing I can remember about her.
