I think Douglas Adams would approve of the rollicking satire of Guess Who, but there is more of a nod to John Irving in Conover's other submission, Perfect for Each Other. Anyone who has read Irving's Garp or The 158-lb. Marriage knows he can be surgically precise in identifying the heart of a troubled relationship, and Conover uses the same incisive intelligence in describing the genetically superior, but emotionally crippled characters in his story.
I read both wanting to know what happens next at the end of the stories, and I eagerly anticipate publication of a full-length novel by this smart, funny, talented writer.
In Empire of Dreams he showed he was capable of dealing with deep social and personal issues while presenting an interesting and well developed backdrop. Here he's showing his ability to broaden his spectrum and take aim at our social and political systems.
