She has since written nearly twenty more works, including Of Love and Shadows (1987) and City ofthe Beasts (2012). Her most recent is Ripper (2014). John Irving was born in Exeter, New Hampshire.

Mr. Irving has been nominated for a National Book Award three times--winning once, in 1980, for his novel "The World According to Garp". He received an O. Henry Award in 1981 for his short story "Interior Space." In 2000, Mr. Irving won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for "The Cider House Rules". In 2013, he won a Lambda Literary Award for his novel "In One Person". An international writer--his novels have been translated into more than thirty-five languages--John Irving lives in Toronto. His all-time bestselling novel, in every language, is "A Prayer for Owen Meany".

Reviews

Its incredible scope represents the dedication of a photographer whose work is imbued with a palpable compassion, and the generosity of a subject willing to unclothe realities of life on the margins of society. -CNN
Mark's black-and-white updated images of her subjects, accompanied by their words, are a testament to an enduring trust and empathy. -The Boston Globe
Her half-century of documentary work and portraiture made Mark, who died in May at age 75, one of the most important photographers of her era. -Los Angeles Times
It is one of the most striking and moving of this season's photography books. -Los Angeles Times
Mark's empathy and compassion toward her subjects make her work exceptionally evocative and powerful. These works provide an opportunity to re-examine the lives of those around us, the hardships and inner worlds hidden to the superficial eye, which Mark's lens and spirit allowed her to capture. -Hyperallergic
