Fred 'Bogus' Trumper is a wayward knight-errant in the battle of the sexes and the pursuit of happiness. He also happens to have a complaint more serious than Portnoy's. Yet he stubbornly clings to the notion that he'll make something of his life, and is about to commit himself to a second marriage that bears remarkable resemblance to his first.
"Brutal reality and hallucination, comedy and pathos. A rich, unified tapestry" * Time * "John Irving, it is abundantly clear, is a true artist. He is not afraid to take on great themes" * Los Angeles Times * "John Irving has been compared with Kurt Vonnegut and J. D. Salinger, but is arguably more inventive than either" * The Times * "Three or four times as funny as most novels" * The New Yorker *
