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

Wednesday, October 04, 2006


Yep, this is the week. Synchronize those timepieces. Only two more days until Mr. T. Coraghessan Boyle appears with Andrea Lee at the Cedar Lake Dance Studios in Chelsea. And, as of about ten minutes ago, Ticketmaster still had tickets available (anywhere from 1 to a maximum of 4) for T.'s appearance at the previously announced price of $16 + a ludicrous $4 "convenience charge". At this point, tickets will need to be held at the "will call" desk since there is not enough time for the Pony Express to get them to your mailbox before the reading.

By the way, we hear that emdashes will be posting reports about the Festival on her blog soon! It was thanks to her that we discovered that not only does The New Yorker publish short stories by T. Coraghessan Boyle -- it also has a cartoon captions winner by the name of T.C. Doyle!
Relaxed after a well-earned vacation and back in Park City, Utah, initialed editor and contest champ T.C. Doyle considers Chast, DeLay, hubris, Hemingway, canoes, the "crustacean-like, single-cell-looking objects" and curiously young leader in Gahan Wilson's drawing, and Doyle's non-doppelganger, T.C. Boyle, who has also been published in The New Yorker. In the very same issue, actually...

On to the strange coincidence of T.C. Doyle and T.C. Boyle appearing in the same issue of The New Yorker. Are you a fan of his writing? Any particular story or novel? I have not read his work.
