There is no blurb to speak of so I started with the first three pages, which convinced me that I will not read the book. This is a book about a Jenny Fields and her son Garp. Jenny wants to live her life with men leaving her alone and Garp wants to be an author. Seems to be a bit about feminists and antifeminists, about families and fears of parents... Thats about all I could ascertain from reading the first few pages and the afterword. I don´t plan to read more, for it doesn´t interest me one bit.

Will go out as RABCK to Mady in Protugal.

It must mean something when you receive by mail, on the same day, two books from John Irving.
Thanks for the RABCK, delfinnetti! :) Let me know if there's something from my bookshelf that takes your fancy.
