Weekend Reading -- Until the Next Time
At first blush, Until the Next Time comes across as a mystery, revolving around a New Yorker exploring his Irish heritage. But the reader is soon awash in religion and politics. I’ve often said, the easiest way to ruin a nice dinner party is to bring up politics or religion. Kevin Fox’s novel proves me wrong!
In Fox’s Until the Next Time, Jesus finds a way to make the case for reincarnation. Go ahead and toss that out there with the appetizers. Your guests will be so deep in history and philosophy they’ll forget they’re bickering over religion.
And you might think broaching the Northern Irish Troubles would incite a Hatfields-and-McCoys-sized feud before you could pass the mashed potatoes. But, no need to hide the steak knives. Your guests will be so busy swooning over the forever romance Fox weaves into the politically fraught historical fabric, they’ll question why anyone would fight when there’s so much reason to love.
