Risinal
John Irving's story of his interactions with the movie industry. This gives some insight into why movies so frequently miss many of the good points in the books. Very readable, of course.
Dugor
I enjoyed this book I guess because I love John Irving so much. Getting insight into his writing process and character developments was enlightening.

Ynye

Rko

Ordered this book from two sources and they were both clean,
signed copies by the author. Very happy with the shipping
from both companies and the books arrived in great shape.
The story itself was classic Irving - humorous, insightful,
and just a little kinky.
