T.C. (Thomas Coraghessan) Boyle has published 23 books of fiction, including The Tortilla Curtain and the PEN/Faulkner Award winner World's End. Boyle's works have been translated into more than two dozen foreign languages, and his short stories have appeared in publications such as The New Yorker, Esquire and The Atlantic. And, he's a wine lover. The Distinguished Professor of English at the University of Southern California lives in Santa Barbara, where he enjoys the Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs of the Central Coast. Wine Spectator's Katherine Cole caught him just as he was heading out on a promotional tour in support of his newest novel, San Miguel.
