John Irving's deeply affecting novel about a family marked with tragedy, centering around the complex, often self-contradictory character of celebrated writer Ruth Cole. The portrait begins with Ruth being four years old and closes in the autumn of 1995, when Ruth Cole is a forty-one-year-old widow and mother.
