Publisher Comments:

20th ANNIVERSARY EDITION

with a new Afterword from the author

The New York Times bestseller

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."

About the Author

John Irving has been nominated for a National Book Award three times-winning once, in 1980, for the novel The World According to Garp. A Prayer for Owen Meany was published in 1989. 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.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
