"In 1954, in the cookhouse of a logging and sawmill settlement in northern New Hampshire, a twelve-year-old boy mistakes the local constable's girlfriend for a bear. Both the twelve-year-old and his father become fugitives, pursued by the constable. Their lone protector is a fiercely libertarian logger, once a river driver, who befriends them. In a story spanning five decades, Last Night in Twisted River - John Irving's twelfth novel - depicts the recent half-century in the United States as a world 'where lethal hatreds were generally permitted to run their course.' From the novel's taut opening sentence to its elegiac final chapter, what distinguishes Last Night in Twisted River is the author's unmistakable voice, the inimitable voice of an accomplished storyteller. Absolute classic Irving - fans of The World According to Garp, The Hotel New Hampshire and Cider House Rules will not be dissapointed. "The Great American Novel is very much alive and well and living among us. Because that is what Last Night In Twisted River is. It's also the most entertaining work of fiction you will read this year" Editor Bill Scott Kerr"

"Last Night in Twisted River is a big, old-fashioned novel in the best sense; Irving has created in painstaking, loving detail a whole and complete world, a record of momentous social changes, but, above all a testament to the enduring power of love and fiction" * Observer * "Irving fans will relish this action-packed tale of father-and-son runaways" * The Sunday Times * "The most poetic and powerful of Irving's work to date" * Independent on Sunday * "Last Night in Twisted River is a big, old-fashioned novel in the best sense; Irving has created in painstaking, loving detail a whole and complete world, a record of momentous social changes, but, above all a testament to the enduring power of love and fiction" * Observer * "Nothing less than show-stopping" * Guardian *
