The World According to Garp
Mass Market  Mass Market  
20th ANNIVERSARY EDITION
with a new Afterword from the author


The 'New York Times' bestseller


This is the life and times of T. S. Garp, the bastard son of Jenny
Fields--a feminist leader ahead of her times. This is the life and death
of a famous mother and her almost-famous son; theirs is a world of sexual
extremes--even of sexual assassinations. It is a novel rich with 'lunacy
and sorrow'; yet the dark, violent events of the story do not undermine a
comedy both ribald and robust. In more than thirty languages, in more than
forty countries--with more than ten million copies in print--this novel
provides almost cheerful, even hilarious evidence of its famous last line:
'In the world according to Garp, we are all terminal cases.
