Strongly Associated with:   John Irving
Notes:
"Superb in scope and originality, a novel as good as one could hope to find from any author, anywhere, anytime. Engrossing, moving, thoroughly satisfying." — Joseph Heller (author of Catch-22)

Accelerated Reader Level/Points:  7.2* / 38

*Although this gets level 7.2 because sentences are not long and that words do not have too many syllables, plot points including abortion and incest make this book appropriate for mature readers.
