Here Boyle dreamcasts adaptations of Gravesend and The Lonely Witness:
The Lonely Witness is a follow up to Gravesend, set almost seven years later but in the same neighborhood and with a couple of the same characters. If they make my books into films, here's who I'd like to play the lead roles. (I sometimes imagine actors into roles as I’m writing, though often faces shift and blend. For the purposes of this, I’ll just settle on dream casts.)Visit William Boyle's website.
