    Garp changed my life

    T.S Garp died today. I was 12 years old when I went to see The World According to Garp, Robin WIlliams' first starring role. That night I decided I wanted to be a writer. I am still plugging away 32 years later. Garp is about a man trying to stay grounded in an increasingly ludicrous world. At the same time, he reveals his human, imperfect side. However, Williams played the role to perfection, & in my opinion the movie belongs among the greatest movies of all time. Still the only example I know where the movie was better than the book. What an awful day, I just had to "share it with as many people as I can," for those who know the movie. Heartsick. God bless you, Robin Williams. "Tarantarantara!"
