I've a huge T.C. Boyle fan. I love his novels, his short stories, and would probably even love his grocery list if I had a chance to read it. A few years ago I read one of his many stories in The New Yorker called "The Lie," about a man who, to get out of work one day, tells a small lie that begins to spiral out of control. It is, in many ways, classic T.C. Boyle. And now it's been made into a movie. Will the movie be good? Hard to say. But I'm glad to see Boyle is getting more love from Hollywood, since so far only four of his short stories and one of his novels have been adapted (as seen here). Let's hope there will be many more.
