The World According to Garp

Résumé

One summer during college, long before I was even thinking of a career in book publishing, I picked up The World According to Garp, and would sit in my beach chair, totally absorbed, as I followed the exploits of Jenny Fields and her son Garp. It is books like this that ultimately motivated me to pursue a career in books.This novel was (and still is) so fresh, imaginative, clever, seductive and mesmerizing that for every summer after that I would re-read Garp ( and I hate to re-read books). Nothing else could compare.

A man's life that passes, with its contradictions and truths. By reading this book I found much more than just Garp, I saw myself in the lives that I did not live and in the ones that I could have lived. This book has changed my view of the passing of time and made me able me to relativize doubts.
