Writing about Wright

The Denver Post talks to T.C. Boyle about The Women.

Boyle compares himself to Wright by saying, "Writing a novel and finding its structure is sort of like building a house and so forth, but one of the ways where we're different is that I need serenity to work. Wright needed this tumult of being sued, of having the press tear him to pieces, having lawyers on his doorstep, his crazy wives and so forth, enough to get his back up to the point where he had no choice but to do the work."
