Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fred 'Bogus' Trumper is a wayward knight-errant in the battle of the sexes and the pursuit of happiness. He also happens to have a complaint more serious than Portnoy's. Yet he stubbornly clings to the notion that he'll make something of his life, and is about to commit himself to a second marriage that bears remarkable resemblance to his first.

The Water Method Man is a work of consummate artistry and comic invention, bizarre imagery and sharp social and psychological observation.

Review:

"Brutal reality and hallucination, comedy and pathos. A rich, unified tapestry" Time

Review:

"John Irving, it is abundantly clear, is a true artist. He is not afraid to take on great themes" Los Angeles Times

Review:

"Three or four times as funny as most novels" The New Yorker
