Renowned author T. Coraghessan Boyle has penned 22 novels, many of which probe the relationship between contemporary human civilization and the natural world. His latest work, When the Killing's Done
, adopts as its setting California's geographically isolated Channel Islands and gives a harrowing fictional account of the battle that ensues when two ideologically opposed environmentalists disagree over the fate of the islands' species. Much like Boyle's previous novels, including the best-selling The Tortilla Curtain
and The Women
, his newest book combines suspenseful narrative and strong characterization with provocative questions about society's role in, and responsibility to, the world in which we live. Boyle takes the stage at San Francisco's Commonwealth Club to share his thoughts on the making and implications of this powerful book.
