T. S. Garp, daughter of Jenny and "Technical Sgt. Garp", whom Jenny mounted on his deathbed. Garp aspires to be a writer, but his career is overshadowed after his mother pens an extremist feminist manifesto which becomes an immediate and influential bestseller. Excellent dramatic performance by both Williams and Glen Close. Also notable is John Lithgow, as a transsexual ex-NFL wide receiver.
