In One Person

A compelling novel of desire, secrecy, and sexual identity, In One Person is a story of unfulfilled love — tormented, funny, and affecting — and an impassioned embrace of our sexual differences. Billy, the bisexual narrator and main character, tells the tragicomic story (lasting more than half a century) of his life as a ‘sexual suspect’, a phrase first used by John Irving in 1978 — in his landmark novel of ‘terminal cases’, The World According to Garp

His most political novel since The Cider House Rules and A Prayer for Owen Meany, John Irving’s In One Person is a poignant tribute to Billy’s friends and lovers — a theatrical cast of characters who defy category and convention. Not least, In One Person is an intimate and unforgettable portrait of the solitariness of a bisexual man who is dedicated to making himself ‘worthwhile’

Rezension
"A brave and hugely affecting depiction of how in one life (sexual and otherwise) we contain multitudes"

Zitat
"This wonderful novel is an epic, moving survey of 70 years of sexual revolution" The Times "Deeply enjoyable... a comic celebration of polymorphous perversity, and of literature" Guardian "Irving has rarely written with the gorgeous poise and control he musters here" Financial Times "In One Person gives a lot. It's funny, as you would expect. It's risky in what it exposes. Tolerance, in a John Irving novel is not about anything goes; it's what happens when we face our own desires honestly, whether we act on them or not" -- Jeanette Winterson "A brave and hugely affecting depiction of how in one life (sexual and otherwise) we contain multitudes" Elle
