Selected by Indie Booksellers for the May 2012 Indie Next List
“As the beguiling Miss Frost puts it in this modern masterpiece of gender politics, 'My dear boy, please don't put a label on me -- don't make me a category before you get to know me!' There is no writer, living or dead, who better humanizes the quirky, the misunderstood, the 'different' than John Irving. Here, through his bisexual protagonist, Billy, he tenderly explores the way American attitudes toward sexuality have -- and have not -- evolved in the past half-century. A heartbreaking, hopeful, complicated, and gorgeous story, In One Person is a must-read.”
-- Libby Cowels, Maria's Bookshop, Durango, CO


Description
His most political novel since "The Cider House Rules" and "A Prayer for Owen Meany" Irving's new novel is an unforgettable portrait of the solitariness of a bisexual man who is dedicated to making himself "worthwhile."
