A Widow for One Year received acclaim as Irving's "most entertaining and persuasive novel. The World According to Garp. storytelling has never been bette. n engaging and often affecting fable, a fairy tale that manages to be old-fashioned and modern all at once" (New York Times).
This sentence opens John Irving’s ninth novel, A Widow for One Year, a story of a family marked by tragedy. Ruth Cole is a complex, often self-contradictory character-a difficult woman. Irving is not one of those writers who kicks out a new novel every year. His novels are too carefully crafted, too (dare I say it?) literary to be anything less than an evolutionary process.

Perhaps Irving's other brilliant books created impossible and unfair expectations, but I just did not care for A Widow For One Year. A Widow for One Year also has its strong points, however it also has some weaknesses. I personally like Irvings writing style so that did not disappoint. 3 people found this helpful. The story was good and at times very engaging. Richly comic, as well as deeply disturbing, A Widow for One Year is a multilayered love story of astonishing emotional force. By no means is she conventionally nice, but she will never be forgotten. Ruth’s story is told in three parts, each focusing on a critical time in her life. Both ribald and erotic, it is also a brilliant novel about the passage of time and the relentlessness of grief. Note from John Irving.
