"Blue Skies" by T.C. Boyle

Returning to the Museum in what has become a much-anticipated and highly-animated annual event, T.C. Boyle, Santa Barbara's prolific and perennial favorite, reads from his latest novel, Blue Skies.

Called by fellow author Annie Proulx, “Brilliantly a terrifying way," Blue Skies follows in the tradition of Boyle's finest novels, combining high-octane plotting with mordant wit and shrewd social commentary. Described as "an eco-thriller with teeth," this tragicomic and prescient novel captures the absurdity and "inexpressible sadness at the heart of everything.” When once rare epic natural disasters happen every week what is left to do but drink?
