John Irving in Toronto, Canada

On Thursday afternoon the American writer John Irving became a Canadian citizen. The author of the best-sellers "The World According to Garp" and "The Ciderhouse Rules" has long loved this country, and Toronto, where he now lives with his Canadian love and maintains his downtown office. Irving's not given up his U.S. passport, but his move here is very special to him: during the citizenship swearing-in he was misty-eyed and sang "O Canada" with pride.

I should read one of his books....

From Friday's edition of the Toronto Star: "Ending up here is a love story."
