Teaser Tuesday: Until I Find You ~ John Irving

September 29, 2009


  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

“Perhaps she had seen what Jack would look like as an older boy, or grown man, and what she saw in him riveted her with longing and desperation.” Until I Find You by John Irving p. 5

    John Irving is one of my favorite authors, but I really left this book not knowing how I felt about it. Even two years after I read it, I can still vividly see the world they moved in and the characters. The story left me quite uncomfortable though. I think he was challenging notions of memory and how perspective changes as people age. I don’t think the main character felt abused as a child, even though he clearly was.

    Have you read Prayer for Owen Meany? That is one of my all time favorite books.

    I used to read his books. I need to go back.
