Until I Find You: Book summary and reviews of Until I Find You by John Irving
Until I Find You Summary
Jack Burns goes to schools in Canada and New England, but what shapes him are his relationships with older women. John Irving renders Jack's life as an actor in Hollywood with the same richness of detail and range of emotions he uses to describe the tattoo parlors in those North Sea ports and the reverberating music Jack heard as a child in European churches.
Until I Find You Reviews
'Though the incessant, graphic sexual abuse becomes gratuitous,
Irving handles the novel's less seedy elements superbly: the earthy
camaraderie of the tattoo parlors, the Hollywood glitz, Jack's
developing emotional authenticity, his discovery of a half-sister
and a moving reunion with his father.' - Publishers Weekly.
