Guest Post on John Irving's Work
I have a guest post this week. I am part of the Best & Worst Series at the At Home with Books blog. Believe it or not, I do read lots of other kinds of books beside mysteries, supernatural novels, and ripping adventures. I chose John Irving because here at Pretty Sinister Books I rarely get to talk about all those other writers that I enjoy reading outside of crime and ghosts and espionage. He was more suited for Alyce's blog.
This guest shot at Alyce's blog was supposed to happen last year, but things got a little crazy around my original assigned slot (it was my birthday weekend bash in New York) and I completely forgot about the post. Gosh darn all that celebrating. So I was pushed up to the first post of 2013. Fittingly, it appears on my dear departed father's birthday. He would have been a grand old 91 years old today. He fostered my reading and -- more importantly -- my writing talents when I was a lad and I miss him terribly. That I chose to write about a book that is about a father figure and his protege is utterly perfect for today.
