Some of you know that my blogging started with my old website, needahand.com, which went defunct three or four years ago for reasons that I won't go into. I started that site in 2001, and for most of that time it focused on the works of John Irving, my favorite living author. His new novel, In One Person, is occupying a lot of my time in my lazy-slug Luxor stay. It's nice to be back n the comfort of Irving's precise and quirky writing style. The story has a bisexual man as the main character, and, even though it's obviously written by a straight man, it's a good one, if you happen to be an Irving-phile; if you're not, you'd be thinking "What the hell kind of writing is this?"... (think: Dickens without any 19th-century restraints).... And I notice that sometime in the last 24 hours, this blog site went over 30,000 "page views", and no, I don't really know what that means either, but thanks for viewing.
