"John Irving's best novel . . . He is among the very best storytellers." - Philadelphia Inquirer From one of America's most beloved and respected writers comes the classic story of Homer Wells, an orphan, and Wilbur Larch, a doctor without children of his own, who develop an extraordinary bond with one another. "Entertaining and affecting . . . A truly astounding amount of artistry and ingenuity." - San Diego Union "Witty, tenderhearted, fervent, and scarifying." - New York Times Book Review
