The World According to Garp, forty years later

A little over 40 years ago, some self-loathing literary somebody walked into the Dutton publishing boardroom with an early manuscript of John Irving’s fourth book in hand. If that doesn’t sound like the beginning of a very funny story, I’d recommend you read the novel (or its synopsis) and start again.

About

Terra Arnone

I'm a freelance writer currently based in Toronto, Ontario covering books, sports, and culture for print and digital outlets across Canada. My work appears most often in the National Post's Arts section, where I write book reviews, profile authors, and gather quick-take digests of the latest in arts and culture for readers on the go.

A graduate of Queen's University, I cut my teeth as Features Editor at the University’s twice-weekly campus newspaper. I followed up my degree with a jaunt through the UK and Europe, taking post-graduate courses in travel writing and making my way across the continent doing just that. I am also a graduate of Ryerson University's Book Publishing program.

With in-house editorial experience at some of Canada's best-known independent and multinational book publishers, it's a keen eye for good books and knowing who will read them that brought me to my current work in books journalism.

I'm glad you're here. If you'd like to learn more about me, my work, or availability for freelance writing and editing projects, please reach out via email at ta.arnone@gmail.com.
