Garp was born by a self expressed asexual mother who does not want a husband. The details of his conception are only the beginning of his bizarre and action-packed life. This book spans Garp's entire life, and is splendidly comprehensive. The story has many wild plots, but they all have some truth that the reader can really connect with. The reader can truly see that Irving's frequent themes are used with his characters.
PS I have not seen the movie…..
