A Widow for One Year
I think his latest novel, "A Widow for One Year," is simply perfect - one of the most satisfying books I've ever read. It's a book about grief, but it's also wildly entertaining. That's what John Irving is all about; he can make you laugh and cry at the same time. And the very last line in this novel sent a shiver up my spine and brought tears of joy to my eyes. Had he written one more word he would have ruined the mood. I tell you, this guy knows when to stop! He is, in my opinion, America's Charles Dickens - a brilliant storteller. Enjoy!
