Lost & Found

Spotted at Rake’s Progress:

Kirkus calls John Irving’s latest effort, Until I Find You, his ‘worst novel’ and reports that it’s full of “limp penis jokes.” The good news is it’s only about 850 pages long

RP, however, fails to mention what Kirkus calls the novel’s “seriocomic” and “extraordinarily blase dramatizations of the sexual abuse of children” — always a sure-fire sign that you’re in for a quality read.

[For today only, read Kirkus's full review of Until I Find You here.]
