I had my usual front row seat Kepler’s today for TC Boyle, and let me tell you —– nobody can rock bright red All-Star sneakers with a black suit and skeleton t-shirt like TC.

What does he read?  Literary fiction.  No genre.

What else does he write?  Only literary fiction, short and long.  He has no interest in writing nonfiction or essays or book reviews.

Favorite thing he said?  Instead of writing what you know, write what you don’t know and discover something.

TC Boyle was the most relaxed, open, humble author.  Just lovely.  I felt like a better person, being in the room with him.

The man’s a rock star.
