Product Description

John Irving, the novelist and screenwriter, competed as a wrestler for twenty years. He was Kurt Vonnegut's student in the Writers' Workshop at the University of Iowa, where Mr. Irving later taught. In 1980, he won a National Book Award for his novel The World According to Garp. In 2000, he won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Cider House Rules, which also won a Maggie Award from Planned Parenthood-in recognition of exceptional achievement in the area of reproductive rights. In 2012 and 2013, Mr. Irving won two Lambda Literary Awards: for Bisexual Fiction, for In One Person; also a Bridge Builder Award, for writing empathetically about the LGBTQ community. His novels have been translated into more than thirty-five languages.

John Irving lives in Toronto. He is at work on a fifteenth novel-a ghost story, titled Darkness as a Bride-and he's in the process of adapting The World According to Garp as a television miniseries.

A masterpiece from one of the great contemporary American writers.

'A wonderful novel, full of energy and art, at once funny and heartbreaking...terrific' WASHINGTON POST

Anniversary edition with a new afterword from the author.

A worldwide bestseller since its publication, Irving's classic is filled with stories inside stories about the life and times of T. S. Garp, struggling writer and illegitimate son of Jenny Fields - an unlikely feminist heroine ahead of her time.

Beautifully written, THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP is a powerfully compelling and compassionate coming-of-age novel that established John Irving as one of the most imaginative writers of his generation.

'A diamond sleeping in the dark, chipped out at last for our enrichment and delight...As approachable as it is brilliant' COSMOPOLITAN

A masterpiece from one of the great contemporary American writers.
Anniversary edition with a new afterword from the author
'BRILLIANT' Cosmpolitan; 'ABSOLUTELY EXTRAORDINARY' L A Times

Absolutely extraordinary...a roller-coaster ride that leaves one breathless, exhausted, elated and tearfulLike all great works of art, Irving's novel seems always to have been there, a diamond sleeping in the dark, chipped out at last for our enrichment and delight...As approachable as it is brilliant, Garp pulses with vital energyThe most powerful and profound novel about women written by a man in our generation .... Like all extraordinary books, Garp defies synopsis ... a marvellous, important, permanent novel by a serious artist of remarkable powersA wonderful novel, full of energy and art, at once funny and heartbreaking. You know it is true. It is also terrificIconic ... The World According to Garp is a huge narrative full of complex emotional rollercoasters typical of a writer's life ... fascinatingly uniqueA social tragi-comedy of such velocity that it reads rather like a domestic sequel to Catch-22A brilliant panoply of current attitudes toward sex, marriage and parenthood, the feminist movement and - above all - the concept of delineated sexual roles... Irving's characters will stay alive for years to comeNothing 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 talentAmerican fiction dotes on its plucky rebel kids - those clear-eyed but big-hearted outsiders and vagabonds who from Twain to Salinger, and far beyond, light out for the territory of a hard-won liberty. No one, over three decades, has worked this seam with more zest and glee than John Irving...his quirkily compassionate individualism reliably stands up for the upstart and the outcast
