Description

This is the life of 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. Rich with "lunacy and sorrow"; yet the dark, violent events of the story do not undermine a comedy both ribald and robust.
