´´John Irving, it is abundantly clear, is a true artist.´´-Los Angeles Times Fred ´´Bogus´´ Trumper has troubles. A divorced, broke graduate student of Old Norse in 1970s New York, Trumper is a wayward knight-errant in the battle of the sexes and the pursuit of happiness: His ex-wife has moved in with his childhood best friend, his life is the subject of a tell-all movie, and his chronic urinary tract infection requires surgery. Trumper is determined to change. There´s only one problem: it seems the harder he tries to alter his adolescent ways, the more he is drawn to repeating the mistakes of the past. . . . Written when Irving was twenty-nine, Trumper´s tale of woe is told with all the wit and humor that would become Irving´s trademark. ´´Three or four times as funny as most novels.´´-The New Yorker Praise for The Water-Method Man ´´Friendship, marriage, and family are his primary themes, but at that blundering level of life where mishap and folly-something close to joyful malice-perpetually intrude and distrupt, often fatally. Life, in [John] Irving´s fiction, is always under siege. Harm and disarray are daily fare, as if the course of love could not run true. . . . Irving´s multiple manner . . . his will to come at the world from different directions, is one of the outstandint traits of The World According to Garp, but this remarkable flair for . . . stories inside stories . . . isalready handled with mastery . . . and with a freedom almost wanton in The Water-Method Man [which is Garp´s predecessor by six years].´´-Terrence Des Pres ´´Brutal reality and hallucination, comedy and pathos. A rich, unified tapestry.´´-Time
