Summary
Garp is a man whose life unfolds from cradle to grave in counterpoint to the dizzy, violent, cruel and casually destructive rhythms of our anxious age. Whilst Garp sees himself as a "serious" writer, his mother Jenny writes a feminist manifesto at an opportune time, and finds herself as a magnet for all manner of distressed women
