This site originally was created in February 2000 from the large number of links to reviews, articles, and interviews that I came across while developing the original Frequently Asked Questions page for T. Coraghessan Boyle's website,  I found his site sometime in September 1999, a few months after finally getting internet access at home.  His site had only been online for a few weeks then and I found myself going back to the beginning of the original (alas, now disappeared forever) messageboard, curious to read what those who had come before me had asked and how he had responded to their questions.  I was impressed by the fact that we had a real, live writer--one whose work I had admired and derived great pleasure from reading since the summer of 1984--who actually seemed to enjoy the immediacy of being able to react to what his readers thought of his work, unhampered by the time delays inherent in mail being forwarded by his publishers.  I also couldn't help but notice the unfailing patience he displayed in his responses to the many students who wrote to him asking for help with their seemingly endless term papers.  He encouraged the aspiring writers, all the while maintaining his characteristic deadpan sense of humor.

.......more to come.....
