The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys

by Chris Furhman

A touching and surprising coming-of-age story, originally published in 1994. It’s too bad it was published after the author’s death; who knows what we’ve lost?”–Linda Cohen, Little Professor Book Co., Temecula, CA

My answer: A John Irving Hack

The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys is basically a shorter version of A Prayer For Owen Meany with character development as stunted as the title character in Irving’s novel. In short, a Sunday afternoon wasted.

If my Library of America edition of Tennessee William’s collected works doesn’t get in soon, I shall be driven to even more desperate measures!
