    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.

    What would have made In One Person better?

    This does not seem like a contemporary novel. There is endless tedium in references to Shakespearean characters and other classical literature/opera. There seems be more of this kind of dialog than there is story. I have enjoyed other Irving novels, but this was a waste of money....not sure if I can even finish it.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No.
