'Like all extraordinary books, The World According to Garp defies synopsis', wrote the Chicago Sun Times when Garp was first published in 1978. It is a marvellous, important, permanent novel by a serious artist of remarkable powers. Garp is a book that captivates all who read it. Peopled with the most extraordinary characters you will ever meet, here is a novel that will make you laugh, make you weep, and, above all, make you think.

"Absolutely extraordinary...a roller-coaster ride that leaves one breathless, exhausted, elated and tearful" * Los Angeles Times * "A wonderful novel, full of energy and art, at once funny and heartbreaking. You know it is true. It is also terrific" * The Washington Post * "Like all great works of art, Irving's novel seems always to have been there, a diamond sleeping in the dark, chipped out at last for our enrichment and delight...As approachable as it is brilliant, Garp pulses with vital energy" * Cosmopolitan * "Like all extraordinary books, The World According to Garp defies synopsis" * Chicago Sun Times *
