T.C. Boyle will read his short story Are We Not Men? at the Los Angeles Hope Festival on Sunday, May 21. The event is free but seats are limited. RSVP here.


American author TC Boyle, who has aptly been described as “a punk Mephistopheles,” talks casually about death and suicide. His interview with Big Think begins, There is no hope whatsoever. Our species will be extinguished probably in a couple of generations, maybe even before that depending upon the microbes of the world.” Yet Boyle exhibits robust mental health, maintaining an orderly writing schedule—four to five hours per day, always in the morning—and a stable life, both with respect to his family and his career as a Professor of English at the University of Southern California.

BTW: Here’s how I’ll be spending the weekend. See you there. P.S. What fun we will have! pic.twitter.com/nMvQcpTq2H
