Noted local author T.C. Boyle will read from his latest novel When the Killing’s Done, in which he again tackles the dark side of “utopian longing in America.” As much as Boyle is known for his ability to examine and give life to historical narratives, he is also a relentless chronicler of the sometimes brutal intersection of humankind and nature as well as our place in the wild in general. In researching When the Killing’s Done, Boyle spent much time on Santa Cruz Island, where most of the novel is set, and also drew from his own experiences as a long-time resident of Santa Barbara.
