On June 12th -- this coming Tuesday!! -- new John Irving will be published. "Until I find you", it's called. Sometimes I feel like I'm just treading water, reading whatever it is I read, between Irvings. Just killing time till the new one comes out. I didn't know this one was coming. Because he takes so long between books [it feels like a long time to me, anyway], I choose not to seek out the next one. I love the surprise. And I just found the listing on Amazon today.
For some reason, I quite dislike Irving's non-fiction. But his novels are exactly what I want from a novel and I love them.
I also have changed the way I drive as a result. I don't do it intentionally, but every time I start to turn the wheel when in the middle of an intersection, waiting for my turn to go left, I remember and straighten out. [Did you READ "A Widow for One Year"? I rest my case.]
He lives in my town some of the year. I've never seen him. Perhaps that's for the best.
New! Irving! On! Tuesday! between that and the new Potter Friday night and all the work that remains on Big Girl Knits, next week promises to be a very good book week. It'd better be.
