Revelle Forum: T.C. Boyle

Revelle Forum moves to UC San Diego’s Institute of the Americas for an evening with acclaimed author T.C. Boyle. His forthcoming work, San Miguel, is the latest entry in what The New York Times called Boyle’s “own fascinating, unpredictable, alternately hilarious and terrifying fictional history of utopian longing in America.” The novel is a soaring historical narrative about two families—one in the 1880s and one in the 1930s—starting new lives on a windswept, near-desolate island off of the Santa Barbara coast. In this haunting work, Boyle describes the island’s fierce winds, constant rain and dense fog—and the effects these natural forces have on the minds and bodies of his characters—with searing, memorable prose, rich with period detail and evocative, dramatic tension.
