Last Night in Twisted River

The author of The World According to Garp and The Cider House Rules, John Irving returns with a new tale of fractured family and lives upended by a tragicomic world. In Last Night in Twisted River, the father-son duo of Cookie and Danny Baciagalupo flee from the law and into a North American odyssey of food, cameraderie, and inescapable violence.
