Until I Find You : A Novel by John Irving (Books) (Hardcover - July 12, 2005) Editions: Hardcover | Audio Cassette (Unabridged) | Audio CD (Unabridged) | Hardcover (Large Print) | Digital (Microsoft Reader) | Digital (Adobe Reader) ~ Jack Burns, the hero of the tale, is four years old when it all begins. He is the illegitimate son of Daughter Alice, a tattoo artist. She takes Jack on a pilgrimage to find his womanizing father, William, a church organist and "ink addict." By seeking out church organs and tattoo parlors, she expects to find him. She doesn't. Alice and Jack return to Toronto so that Jack may enter a previously all-girls school, which will admit little boys for the first time. There begins another 200 pages of the girls and the teachers abusing Jack, over and over again. By now, he is five and is, for some unfathomable reason, eminently interesting to girls and women. His "friend" Emma keeps careful track of "the little guy," as she calls Jack's penis, looking for signs of life.
