    The opening sentence of John Irving's breakout novel, The World According to Garp, signals the start of sexual violence, which becomes increasingly political. "Garp's mother, Jenny Fields, was arrested in Boston in 1942 for wounding a man in a movie theater." Jenny is an unmarried nurse; she becomes a single mom and a feminist leader, beloved but polarizing. Her son, Garp, is less beloved, but no less polarizing.

    Eine Lesetour von John Irving im deutschsprachigen Raum ist genauso ein Ereignis wie ein neuer Irving-Roman. Denn John Irving ist nicht nur ein begnadeter Erzähler, sondern auch ein charismatischer Vorleser. Es gibt nur ein Problem: Lesungen von John Irving sind selten und immer in kürzester Zeit ausverkauft. Zum Glück gibt es diesmal einen Mitschnitt für alle, die nicht live dabei sein können.
