Publisher Description

Now available in eBook for the first time in America—the New York Times bestselling saga of a most unusual family from the award-winning author of The World According to Garp.

“The first of my father’s illusions was that bears could survive the life lived by human beings, and the second was that human beings could survive a life led in hotels.” So says John Berry, son of a hapless dreamer, brother to a cadre of eccentric siblings, and chronicler of the lives lived, the loves experienced, the deaths met, and the myriad strange and wonderful times encountered by the family Berry. Hoteliers, pet-bear owners, friends of Freud (the animal trainer and vaudevillian, that is), and playthings of mad fate, they “dream on” in a funny, sad, outrageous, and moving novel by the remarkable author of A Prayer for Owen Meany and Last Night in Twisted River.

The Hotel New Hampshire

Early Irving,before the fame and fandom. Characters that will live on; themes that reappear in later novels; settings and locations (Especially New England) that are critical to all of the subsequent fictions. Family-the essence of our beings.
John Irving is such a delight to read !

Satanicpuppy ,

I can’t believe how much I hated this book.

Literally the first book in my life I ever destroyed. Might be the only one.
