"I had read "The Tortilla Curtain" with my book group and was intrigued by T.C. Boyle's style of writing. Riven Rock was such an adventure into the strange world and lives of the Stanley McCormick family. I loved how he wove two historical figures into this fictional story full of such a range of emotions. This book kept me totally captivated. I enjoyed each character and can't wait to read "The Road to Wellville" next!"
