A worldwide bestseller since its publication in 1978, Irving's classic is filled with stories inside stories about the life of T.S. Garp, novelist and son of Jenny Fields. "There is something of Byron about John Irving.

New York: E. P. Dutton, 1978. First printing. Fine in about-fine jacket.. Inscribed first edition of this epic and intimate, humorous and tragic story of writer T. S. Garp's life - adapted into a 1984 Oscar-nominated film starring Robin Williams and Glenn Close. The National Book Award-winning THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP established John Irving's writing career. Though the concept of the story sounds relatively straightforward - the life of a writer - THE LOS ANGELES TIMES notes the book "should not, indeed cannot, be summarized... it is a book of incredible energy, a rollercoaster ride that leaves one breathless, exhausted, elated and tearful" (16). A wonderful copy with warm inscription. 9.5'' x 6.25''. Original blue cloth-backed yellow boards with gilt spine lettering. Original unclipped ($10.95) color and gilt dust jacket designed by Leo Manso. Fore-edge machine deckle, red endpapers. 438 pages.

Description:
NY: Dutton. (1978). The advance reading copy of his fourth novel and breakthrough book, which went into numerous printings, became a multi-million copy bestseller and a National Book Award winner in its paperback release. The first printing of Garp was reported at 35,000 copies; none of Irving's previous books had sold even 5,000 copies, with one of them having had sales under 2000. Irving switched publishers for this book, and his new publisher decided to promote the novel heavily. After issuing two sets of proofs in small numbers for early readers and reviewers, Dutton printed this advance reading copy for wide distribution to the book trade. It worked in bringing attention to Irving's novel, which became a bestseller; since then, Irving's books have had six-figure first printings and his reputation as a major American novelist is secure. The publisher's risk, in producing such a large first printing, and their marketing efforts -- including creating this advance copy -- played no small part in this… Read More
