About the Author

John Irving published his first novel, Setting Free the Bears, in 1968. He has been nominated for a National Book Award three times-winning once, in 1980, for the novel The World According to Garp. He also received an O. Henry Award, in 1981, for the short story “Interior Space.” In 1992, Mr. Irving was inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in Stillwater, Oklahoma. In 2000, he won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Cider House Rules-a film with seven Academy Award nominations. In 2001, he was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Last Night in Twisted River is John Irvings twelfth novel.

Lindsay Waite, August 10, 2012 (view all comments by Lindsay Waite)
In this book, Irving takes us into a world of a cook (Dominic), his son (Daniel), and a rascal of a friend who stayed behind in the town of Twisted River after Dominic and Daniel flee. Like Dickens, we follow these characters, and those who enter their lives, through several decades of joys and sorrows wondering if and when the "elephant in the room" will reappear. The book is self-reflective as well. Through the character of Daniel (who becomes a writer), the process of writing, including this book, becomes part of the story. It causes one to think a lot about how much of a novel is about the writer, and how much is drawn only from the imagination (if that distinction can, in fact, be made). This book revived my love of Irving's literature, which had been dormant for a while. I am now catching up on two from his past works I haven't yet read ("The Fourth Hand," "Until I Find You") and then will read his newest, "In One Person."
