Setting Free the Bearsby John Irving
Synopses & Reviews
It is 1967 and two Viennese university students want to liberate the Vienna Zoo, as was done after World War II. But their good intentions have both comic and gruesome consequences, in this first novel written by a twenty-five year old John Irving, already a master storyteller.
"[O]ne may conclude that the author has dumped some of the material of experience into a picaresque novel, which is less than the sum of its parts." New York Times Book Review
