The World According to Garp IRVING, John
"Nothing in contemporary fiction matches it..... Irving's blend of gravity and play is unique, audacious, almost blasphemous.... Brilliant, funny, and consistently wise; a work of vast talent." The New Republic
This is the life of T.S. Garp, the bastard son of Jenny Fields -a feminist leader ahead of her time. This is the life and death of a famous mother and her almost-famous son; theirs is a world of sexual extremes - even of sexual assassinations. It is a novel rich with "lunacy and sorrow"; yet the dark, violent events of the story do not undermine a comedy both ribald and robust. In more than thirty languages, in more than forty countries - with more than ten million copies in pring - this novel provides almost cheerful, even hilarious evidence of its famous last line. "In the world according to Garp, we are all terminal cases."
"The most powerful and profound novel about women written by a man in our generation... Like all extraordinary books, Garp defies synopsis... A marvelous, important, permanent novel by a serious artist of remarkable powers." Chicago Sun-Times
