John Irving, author of The World According to Garp, is profiled in the 1996 book Brave Souls: Writers and Artists Wrestle with God, Love, Death and the Things that Matter (Stoddart of Toronto) By Douglas Todd.
John Irving: "Now, if you push me to the wall, I'd say I'm not a believer. But it depends on the day you ask... I'm not comfortable calling myself a believer, a Christian. But if somebody says, 'are you an atheist?' I'd back down from that question too."
