In One Person by John Irving.. Mutable gender, what a concept. And we all seem to be evolving towards understanding, if not embracing it. In this loving, deep and powerful novel on the complexity of human desires, Irving hits one out of the park. What you've been waiting for: stop waiting.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Gorgeous…Irving remains a master builder when it comes to constructing an epic plot filled with satisfying twists."

Entertainment Weekly

"Cause for excitement: John Irving’s In One Person, his most daringly political, sexually transgressive, and moving novel in well over a decade, follows the life of charming Billy, an ambitious, bisexual writer as he pursues his desires…Theatrical, generous, sad."

Vanity Fair
