Book The World According to Garp

Download or read book The World According to Garp written by John Irving and published by Vintage Canada. This book was released on 2000-11-07 with total page 642 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Winner of the National Book Award “Nothing in contemporary fiction matches it.” —The New Republic “Wonderful . . . full of energy and art, at once funny and horrifying and heartbreaking.” —Washington Post Powerful and political, with unforgettable characters and timeless themes, The World According to Garp is John Irving’s breakout novel. The precursor of Irving’s later protest novels, it is the story of Jenny, an unmarried nurse who becomes a single mom and a feminist leader, beloved but polarizing—and of her son, Garp, less beloved, but no less polarizing. From the tragicomic tone of its first sentence to its mordantly funny last line—“we are all terminal cases”—The World According to Garp maintains a breakneck pace. The subject of sexual hatred and violence—of intolerance of sexual minorities, and sexual differences—runs through the book, as relevant now as ever. Available in more than forty countries—with more than ten million copies in print—Garp is a comedy with forebodings of doom.

Download or read book The World According to Garp written by John Irving and published by Penguin. This book was released on 2018-10-25 with total page 709 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Now available as an ebook for the first time ever in America, the bestselling coming-of-age classic novel by John Irving—the 40th anniversary edition with a new introduction by the author. “He is more than popular. He is a Populist, determined to keep alive the Dickensian tradition that revels in colorful set pieces...and teaches moral lessons.”—The New York Times The opening sentence of John Irving’s breakout novel The World According to Garp signals the start of sexual violence, which becomes increasingly political. “Garp’s mother, Jenny Fields, was arrested in Boston in 1942 for wounding a man in a movie theater.” Jenny is an unmarried nurse; she becomes a single mom and a feminist leader, beloved but polarizing. Her son, Garp, is less beloved, but no less polarizing. From the tragicomic tone of its first sentence to its mordantly funny last line—“we are all terminal cases”—The World According to Garp maintains a breakneck pace. The subject of sexual hatred—of intolerance of sexual minorities and differences—runs the gamut of “lunacy and sorrow.” Winner of the National Book Award, Garp is a comedy with forebodings of doom. In more than thirty languages, in more than forty countries—with more than ten million copies in print—Garp is the precursor of John Irving’s later protest novels.

Book Fictional Feminism

Download or read book Fictional Feminism written by Kim A. Loudermilk and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2013-08-21 with total page 271 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book focuses on the ways in which second-wave feminism has been represented in American popular culture, and on the effects that these representations have had on feminism as a political movement. Kim Loudermilk provides close readings of four best-selling novels and their film adaptations. According to Loudermilk, each of these novels contains explicitly feminist characters and themes, yet each presents a curiously ambivalent picture of feminism; these texts at once take feminism seriously and subtly undercut its most central tenets. This book argues that these texts create a kind of "fictional feminism" that recuperates feminism's radical potential, thereby lessening the threat it presents to the status quo.

Book The World According to Homo Sapiens

Download or read book The World According to Homo Sapiens written by Philip R. Sullivan M. D. and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2005-02 with total page 282 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Do we see the world as it really is, or is the world of our experience mere illusion?" That question has fascinated reflective people since ancient times. Modern neuroscience has finally provided the definitive answer -- it's both -- and The World According To Homo Sapiens explains how this comes to be so. Aimed primarily at a sophisticated general readership interested in how the human brain works, Homo Sapiens is written in a good-humored conversational style, using only the occasional well-explained technical term. At the same time, however, it clearly has innovative things to say to specialists in the theory-of-mind. Homo Sapiens deals with three pivotal issues of the new brain-science, each selected because of its inherent interest to general readers: PART I focuses on our systematic human illusions about 'What Is'; PART II develops a biologically based grounding for human moral choice; and PART III addresses the unresolved enigma of human consciousness -- how we are to account for the presence of this amazing property in the naturalized world of modern science.
