The 158-pound Marriage Paperback
by John Irving
Severin Winter is not a man to take things lightly.
His loving, like his wrestling, is decidedly heavyweight, a fact not lost on Utch, a lonely Viennese lady whose husband is rather taken (literally) by the delicate Edith, Severin's underweight wife.
A bizarre menage a quatre is the result of these convoluted desires as Irving blends farce and tragedy in another bubbling and brilliant novel.

Review by NicholasPayne
Not among Irving's best, but neither is it a waste of time.
