Follow Up On John Irving
I mentioned John Irving's Until I Find You in my post about books on May 12, 2006. Now, one of my anonymous readers has sent me a picture of himself with Irving at a reception in Vienna. Irving is on the right. Some of my readers will recognize my anonymous correspondent on the left. He likes to meet celebrities but he won't write about his experiences for public consumption. Among the other famous people with whom he has spent quality time, i.e. more than just shaking their hands, are: Bo Derek, Helmut Kohl, Nadine Gordimer, Paula Zahn, Lisa Henson, Harvey Cox and I'm sure many others whose names I can't remember off the top of my head. He has also lived for extended periods in Central America, Africa and Europe, but he won't write about his experiences for public consumption, something I give him grief about every time I see him. Consider this more grief, anonymous.
