Reviews
Praise for John Irving and The World According to Garp

"John Irving, it is abundantly clear, is a true artist." --Los Angeles Times

"A brilliant panoply of current attitudes toward sex, marriage and parenthood, the feminist movement and--above all--the concept of delineated sexual roles . . . Irving's characters will stay alive for years to come." --Chicago Tribune

"A social tragi-comedy of such velocity that it reads rather like a domestic sequel to Catch-22." --The Observer (London)

"A large talent announces itself on practically every page." --The Book of the Month Club News
