The World According to Garp by John Irving

The World According to Garp is one of the biggest selling books of the 70s.  It helped make John Irving a household name at the time. Over 10 million copies were sold world wide.  It's listed on the list of top 500 books for teens also. I loved this book but then I love almost all of John Irving's work. This is a paperback edition reissued I 1988.  It's in very good condition. For more books like this, check this website or email
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."
