The Cider House Rules

The Cider House Rules


Book Overview: The Cider House Rules

"AN OLD-FASHIONED, BIG-HEARTED NOVEL . . . with its epic yearning caught in the 19th century, somewhere between Trollope and Twain . . . The rich detail makes for vintage Irving."
--The Boston Sunday Globe
"The Cider House Rules is filled with people to love and to feel for. . . . The characters in John Irving's novel break all the rules, and yet they remain noble and free-spirited. Victims of tragedy, violence, and injustice, their lives seem more interesting and full of thought-provoking dilemmas than the lives of many real people."
--The Houston Post
"John Irving's sixth and best novel . . . He is among the very best storytellers at work today. At the base of Irving's own moral concerns is a rare and lasting regard for human kindness."
--The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Entertaining and affecting . . . John Irving is the most relentlessly inventive writer around. He proliferates colorful incidents and crotchets of character. . . . A truly astounding amount of artistry and ingenuity."
--The San Diego Union

Born on March 2, 1942, in Exeter, New Hampshire, he began writing at a young age. Irving made his breakthrough with the novel "The World According to Garp" in 1978, which later became a film and won him a large global following. Many of his later works, including the bestseller "A Prayer for Owen Meany" and "The Cider House Rules", an Academy Award-winning screenplay, have solidified Irving's place as one of America's foremost modern novelists. Irving, who often uses themes of absence and identity in his works, is also known for his strong advocacy on social issues like sexual inequality and children's rights. His unique storytelling style continues to attract new generations of readers worldwide.
