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 of In One Person, 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."

Magnificent

You only have to see John Irving's name to know that his book will be probing, revealing, humorous and poignant. He works in the complexities of human nature in a way that no other writer can. He always brings both the levity of humour and the sincerity of empathy to the reading experience, and In One Person is no exception. He brings together and all-star cast of characters who represent every dimension of sexual identity to show that there really is no sense of 'normal'; obtusely, maybe the only 'normal' is not being 'normal'. He embraces differences, perhaps to an unrealistic extent, as each of his characters are far more interesting than the average person would find on their spectrum of aquaintances. But it is literature, and someone elses reality, so you just have to suspend your disbelief on that one.
