TC Boyle The Art of the Story 2008

TC Boyle The Art of the Story: Short-story writer and novelist T.C. Boyle, known for his depiction of nature as an often random and brutal force, is presented here in a formal public reading of Chicxulub. The story juxtaposes a cataclysmic collision that occurred on earth 65 million years ago with a more immediate familial disaster-the loss of a child. Interspersed throughout are analytic commentaries by professional educators and writers, and Boyles own insights into the genesis of the story itself, the threat of extinction, the dilemma of mortality, and the affect of parenthood on his material. The film concludes with Boyles extended and forthright contemplation on the writing of Chicxulub, and in a wider scope, the function of the fiction writer.
