    The Washington Post
  • "Like all great works of art, Irving's novel seems always to have been there, a diamond sleeping in the dark, chipped out at last for our enrichment and delight...As approachable as it is brilliant, Garp pulses with vital energy"

    Cosmopolitan
  • "Like all extraordinary books, The World According to Garp defies synopsis"

    Chicago Sun Times
