40 Forever: Still Reading

LOOK!!! Our weekly book review section exclusive to The Songbook from Rebecca Hickman at 40 Forever…

I’m not done reading yet.

“This is my twelfth novel. Only once before in The World According to Garp which was my fourth novel have I been able to insert the title of the novel into the last sentence. I don’t always try to do that; I don’t force it. But its usually an idea in the back of my mind, and if it works, I don’t hesitate to do it . . . ” – John Irving

Irving, John. Last Night in Twisted River: A Novel. New York: Random House, 2009.

I broke my word. No John Irving review this week. Last night in Twisted River is such a great book that I can’t bear to finish it yet. Since there are only about 70 pages left to go, I’m savoring it and only reading a few pages a night. In the meanwhile, visit the author’s official site to learn more about his writing process.
