Welcome Back, Sabich

Why did it take over years for Scott Turow to be ready to write the sequel to his huge hit, Presumed Innocent? The author answers that question in the  trailer for his new book, Innocent, below (gotta love that Chicago accent!).

Reviewers, naturally, have been all over it. Michiko Kakutani in the NYT gave it her usual grudging praise, “If readers can accept [the] dubious opening premise, however, Mr. Turow does manage to turn the remainder of the novel into a fast and absorbing ride.” Other reviewers have had their own reservations. Entertainment Weekly, disagreeing with Kakutani’s assessment that it’s fast paced, says it’s “…not a slam-bang thriller but an unusually introspective and elegiac book. You may wonder, of course, if that’s a nice way of saying it’s boring … Kinda.” and gives it a B.
