Product description

"His most daringly political, sexually transgressive, and moving novel in well over a decade" ("Vanity Fair").A "New York Times" bestselling 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." "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."
