Beschreibung

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.”

Kritikerstimmen

"A profound truth is arrived at in these pages. It is Irving at his most daring, at his most ambitious. It is America and American writing, both at their very best.” (Abraham Verghese)
"His most daringly political, sexually transgressive, and moving novel in well over a decade." (Vanity Fair)
In One Person is a rich and absorbing book, even beautiful.” (Esquire)

John Benjamin Hickey is an absolutely amazing narrator. Even though he doesn't do this regularly as an actor, his voice carries the story gracefully and it made the whole experience of this audio book even better.

Enttäuscht !

Ich habe mich, als langjähriger Fan von John Irving, sehr auf das neue Buch gefreut. Leider zu früh. Habe mich gestern durch die erste Hörbuch CD gequält. Nach Last Night in Twisted River ist dies das 2te Buch in dem man nichts von dem Esprit, dem Wortwitz und der Genialität spürt die frühere Bücher von John Irving auszeichnen. Schade !
