Thomas Coraghessan Boyle, better known as TC Boyle, is a prolific fiction writer who has published dozens of works since the 1970s. His accolades include several O. Henry Awards, a PEN/Faulkner Award, and the Kenyon Review Award for Literary Achievement. He’s also been a National Book Award finalist and his short stories regularly appear in the Best American Stories collections. At times humorous, other times bleak, Boyle is a writer’s writer who appeals to people with a literary–albeit modern–sensibility. He addresses themes of neuroticism, misguided heroes, and the environment. He is also known for weaving historical facts into his works, but often with a touch of the magical. Drop City is one of his most popular novels. It follows a nudist and countercultural community who face the stark realities of social independence when they attempt to relocate to an isolated, wild part of Alaska. The narrative parallels real hippy communities of the 1960s and 70s. It was a finalist for the National Book Award.
