Fiction. Literature. HTML:A special 40th anniversary edition of the bestselling coming-of-age classic novel by John Irving, with a new introduction by the author. 

"He is more than popular. He is a Populist, determined to keep alive the Dickensian tradition that revels in colorful set pieces...and teaches moral lessons."??The New York Times 

The opening sentence of John Irving's breakout novel, The World According to Garp, signals the start of sexual violence, which becomes increasingly political. "Garp's mother, Jenny Fields, was arrested in Boston in 1942 for wounding a man in a movie theater." Jenny is an unmarried nurse; she becomes a single mom and a feminist leader, beloved but polarizing. Her son, Garp, is less beloved, but no less polarizing. 

From the tragicomic tone of its first sentence to its mordantly funny last line??"we are all terminal cases"??The World According to Garp maintains a breakneck pace. The subject of sexual hatred??of intolerance of sexual minorities and differences??runs the gamut of "lunacy and sorrow." Winner of the National Book Award, Garp is a comedy with forebodings of doom. In more than thirty languages, in more than forty countries??with more than ten million copies in print??Garp is the precursor of John Irving's

    dele2451: Garp and Owen would make a great literary double feature. I wish I didn't have to wait so many years between reading both of these wonderful books.

A good read, amusing, well written, difficult at times, but I liked it. ( )

En smått otrolig historia berättad med intensivt driv. En stor läsupplevelse ( )

Here's what I wrote in 2011 about this read: "Glad I read it - recalled some of the story from the movie, but book much deeper and better. T.S. Garp was a loving, worried, and fretful soul. The Pension Grillparzer famous story within a story - Vienna and I liked it!" ( )

This one left me with a good feeling, though I can't recall anything about it, except something about a hotel. ( )

This book just charms my socks off. Much more fun than the movie. I read it in high school and loved it, then read it again a few years ago and loved it again. Twisted, straightforward, and engrossing. ( )

The World According to Garp was more than single, memorable moments. It was unforgettable as a whole for a simple reason - it was epic. It was what a Great American Novel needs to be: all of life between covers.
 
These things oughtn't to be funny. Still, the way that Mr. Irving writes about them, they are. They way he filters them through his hero's unique imagination, we not only laugh at the world according to Garp, but we also accept it and love it.

people who have problems do not, as a rule, think their problems are "funny."
I have nothing but sympathy for how people behave--and nothing but laughter to console them with.
