Splash du Jour: Thursday

I don't begin a novel or a screenplay until I know the ending. And I don't mean only that I have to know what happens. I mean that I have to hear the actual sentences. I have to know what atmosphere the words convey.

-- John Irving –

I am just now embarking on a novel by this guy.
It is exhilarating to start in on an Irving.

Have a great Thursday!

It's called Until I Find You.
It's a real doorstop of a gargantuan hefty thing.
And very very good.
820 small-fonted pages!
I have yet to read a bad Irving novel!
