"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 HellerFrom the Hardcover edition.
From the Publisher
"The Cider House Rules was the first John Irving book I read. I had no idea of the subject matter and, in a matter of a few pages I was entranced by the story. The characters were so human and humane; what a moving argument for the right of a woman to choose. I recently read Widow for a Year and was loved it as well."
