Ransom Center Acquires T.C. Boyle Archive

As one of the nation’s preeminent humanities archives, UT’s Harry Ransom Center houses the legacies of such literary giants as Norman Mailer, Don LeLillo, and David Foster Wallace.

Add one more name to that star-studded list: T. C. Boyle.

Today the center announced the acquisition of Boyle’s literary achive, which includes everything from early manuscripts and notes scribbled on file folders to correspondence with famous friends like Woody Allen and Joyce Carol Oates.

Boyle is the author of 22 books, winner of the prestigious PEN/Faulkner award, and frequent contributor to the New Yorker and the Atlantic.

His books are acclaimed for their black comic style and sharp social satire. Works like 1995’s The Tortilla Curtain add to the political conversation on hot-button topics, from illegal immigration to class mobility to race.

Boyle will read from his most recent book, When the Killing’s Done, at BookPeople on March 19.
