Avenue of Mysteries

John Irving

  • First edition
  • First printing
  • Signed by the author

In his latest novel, Avenue of Mysteries, an absorbing novel of fate and memory, Irving returns to the themes that established him as one of the world’s most admired and beloved writers. As we grow older – most of all, in what we remember and what we dream – we live in the past. Sometimes, we live more vividly in the past than in the present.
Avenue of Mysteries is the story of what happens to Juan Diego in the Philippines, where what happened to him in the past—in Mexico—collides with his future.
