The World According to Garp was published in 1978, my freshman year at a high school not unlike the one attended by John Irving’s title character, T.S. Garp. I don’t remember which year I read it, but it was the summer, and I finished it late at night, in the corner of the couch in our living room, in tears. I had lived a lifetime through generations of Garps and I did not want to leave them.
Vintage German Alice in Wonderland
If I were to describe it to you, it would sound boring but it is one of my favorite books.
The Country Child by Alison Uttley for those of you who are doubtful. I only recognise it because it's the same cover as my much loved English edition!
