Title: The Cider House Rules
Author: John Irving
First Ballantine Books Trade Edition, May 1999
CONDITION: Like new, with some dust and minor creasing in page 543. Clean and the book’s binding is tight.
REVIEWS: “Clearly Irving’s best-made book and a book of importance. It is a tour de force, a heavyweight among books, as John Irving must be accounted among writers... He accomplishes his feat with both humanity and wisdom ... A moving, sometimes hilarious, and unfailingly entertaining story.” – St Petersburg Times

On Rabbit, Run -- “Brilliant and poignant ... By his compassion, clarity of insight, and crystal-bright prose, [Updike] makes Rabbit’s sorrow his and our own.” – The Washington Post.
On Rabbit Redux -- “‘Great in love, in art, boldness, freedom, wisdom, kindness, exceedingly rich in intelligence, wit, imagination, and feeling – a great and beautiful thing ...” These hyperboles (quoted from a letter written long ago by Thomas Mann) comes to mind after reading John Updike’s Rabbit Redux.” – The New York Times Book Review
