The story of the actor Jack Burns. His mother, Alice, is a Toronto tattoo artist. When Jack is four, he travels with Alice to several North Sea ports; they are trying to find Jack's missing father, William, a church organist who is addicted to being tattooed. But Alice is a mystery, and William can't be found. Even Jack's memories are subject to doubt. 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.

I love Irving! And the reader in this version is decent (not the best I've ever heard, but definitely able to listen to the book and enjoy it thoroughly).

Typical John Irving wry and dry humor

Irving is unique among writers. His penchant for repetition is bizarre but effective.

"And the old tattoos were always sentimental; you didn't mark yourself for life if you weren't sentimental."
