Search - List of Books by Terry Davis

Terry Davis (born 1947) is an American novelist who lives in Minnesota and is currently a professor in the English department at Minnesota State University, Mankato (MSUM), where he teaches Creative writing — fiction and screenwriting — as well as adolescent literature. Davis, who has been a high-school English teacher and a wrestling coach, is the author of three novels for young adults: Vision Quest (1979), Mysterious Ways (1984), and If Rock & Roll Were a Machine (1992). He has also written Presenting Chris Crutcher, a biography of the respected young-adult author.

John Irving called Vision Quest "the truest novel about growing up since Catcher in the Rye," and said, "it's a better novel about wrestling, and wrestlers, than The World According to Garp."

Vision Quest was made into a 1985 movie of the same title, starring Matthew Modine and Linda Fiorentino.
