Author T.C. Boyle is known for his rollicking storytelling and satirical takes on historical figures in books like “The Road to Wellville.” His latest novel explores the darker side of the American ideal of freedom, from a woman who follows the extreme libertarian “sovereign citizen” movement to a disturbed young man who models himself on the pioneer John Colter. We speak with the author about his work, the cultural undercurrents he explores, and the writing life.
