At long last, a new John Irving novel. John Irving is one of our most celebrated novelists for a reason he's a storyteller of such great scope, whose characters hold us for decades. Perhaps he's our Dickens. The world according to John Irving is one full of humor, tragedy, grace and disappointment, perhaps tinged with a touch of the circus. His narratives are sometimes epic, and his characters are as human and flawed as they are heroic. John Irving's novels mesh the comic and the tragic, and the glory of love and family, and the cosmic twists that can turn our lives upside down in a matter of a second.
In his new novel, Avenue of Mystery, Irving explores people who think they see the future. What would we do if we really could predict the future? What would we do, what should we do, if we think we know the fate of someone we love? Can we change the future even if we can predict it? Avenue of Mystery is a trans-continental family story about dreaming, and our fascination with the past. Epic, it weaves dreams of the past into the present, which determine the future. This is why we love John Irving.
