Not for the first time, I’ve been away from this space lately and busy living in interesting times. So I was surprised but pleased to learn (via Tom Spurgeon) that On the Ropes is still being reviewed here and there, all these months since the book was first published.
The latest comes from reviewer Jerry Smith on his Humble Opinions blog. Smith has some brief but well-considered remarks about how well the book met the goals I’d set for it,and wraps things up by calling it “an incredible story about human experiences…(that) leaves readers pondering its events and themes long after the last page is turned.” It’s the kind of reader reaction that leaves a writer flattered and humbled.
