The Last Chairlift by John Irving

Synopsis

John Irving, one of the world's greatest novelists, returns with his first novel in seven years - a ghost story, a love story, and a lifetime of sexual politics. In Aspen, Colorado, in 1941, Rachel Brewster is a slalom skier at the National Downhill and Slalom Championships. Little Ray, as she is called, finishes nowhere near the podium, but she manages to get pregnant. Back home, in New England, Little Ray becomes a ski instructor. Her son, Adam, grows up in a family that defies conventions and evades questions concerning the eventful past. Years later, looking for answers, Adam will go to Aspen. In the Hotel Jerome, where he was conceived, Adam will meet some ghosts; in The Last Chairlift , they aren't the first or the last ghosts he sees.

John Irving has written some of the most acclaimed books of our time - among them, The World According to Garp and The Cider House Rules. A visionary voice on the subject of sexual tolerance, Irving is a bard of alternative families. In The Last Chairlift , readers will once more be in his thrall. 

Reviews

'John Irving is his own thing... accessibly eccentric and beautifully human' Tayari Jones

'Irving's novels are not just page-turners. Time and time again, he forces readers to consider important social issues' Guardian
