From the Inside Flap
The main character of John Irving's second novel, written when the author was twenty-nine, is a perpetual graduate student with a birth defect in his urinary tract--and a man on the threshold of committing himself to a second marriage that bears remarkable resemblance to his first....
"Three or four times as funny as most novels."
THE NEW YORKER
From the Paperback edition.

This is my fourth Irving book, and I was so disappointed I will have to will myself to read another.
If your into toilet humor and bad taste, this one is for you. If this is one of Irving's better books as some of the reviewers have stated, I wouldn't touch the others with a ten foot pole. I depend a lot on the comments of our fellow readers before making purchases, you guys let me down on this one.
