A handsome first edition/first printing in Fine in a very nearly Fine dust-jacket with two short closed tears to front panel. Signed by author John Irving on the title page. An attractive collectible, rather scarce.
Irving's fourth book, about the life of T. S. Garp, and his famous mother, Jenny Fields. Whilst Garp sees himself as a "serious" writer, Jenny writes a feminist manifesto at an opportune time, and finds herself as a magnet for all manner of distressed women.
Basis for the movie starring Robin Williams, Mary Beth Hurt and Glenn Close.
