While this novel has a "primed for film" sensibility to it, the characters are compelling and language choices relatable. My sense is the Curtis Violet character was modeled on John Irving-just a guess, but again, the author manages to take a somewhat out of the ordinary experience and bring it down to earth. Well done, and a pageturner (or dare i say screenswiper?) from beginning to end.
