Who is up for some wife swappin'? That is a major plot point in Irving's third novel, from 1974. He's in Updike/Cheever territory (infidelity and angst among WASPs), but Irving, because of his humor, insight, and lack of moralizing, is generally more successful than they are. If you like Irving, then you'll like this as it tackles familiar themes (love, sex, relationships, writing, wrestling). The title refers to a wrestling weight class. Not as good as his classic "The World According to Garp," but worthwhile for the Irving aficionado.
