Description
New York Times bestseller -- 20th anniversary edition with a new afterword from the author -- "A wonderful novel, full of energy and art, at once funny and horrifying and heartbreaking."- The Washington Post This is the life and times of T. S. Garp, the bastard son of Jenny Fields--a feminist leader ahead of her times. 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 print--this novel provides almost cheerful, even hilarious evidence of its famous last line: "In the world according to Garp, we are all terminal cases." Praise for The World According to Garp "John Irving, it is abundantly clear, is a true artist." - Los Angeles Times "A 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 come." - Chicago Tribune "A social tragi-comedy of such velocity that it reads rather like a domestic sequel to Catch-22 ." - The Observer (London) "A large talent announces itself on practically every page." - The Book-of-the-Month Club News

Description
Journey through generations and across two continents with the astonishing family of T.S. Garp, bastard son of a belligerent mother. Garp loves, lusts, labors and triumphs in a world of assassins, wrestlers, feminist fanatics, tantalizing teenage babysitters, adoring children and a wayward wife. His life is comic, tragic, violent and tender, his world outrageous, and it is as real as our own.
