Beschreibung

Der dreizehnte Roman von John Irving wird erst der zweite sein, der in der ersten Person erzählt ist. Es dreht sich um einen bisexuellen Mann um die sechzig, der auf sein Leben in den Fünfziger- und Sechzigerjahren zurückschaut. Ein sehr intimes, tolerantes und leidenschaftliches Buch, das den Leser laut Kritikerstimme stolz macht, ein Mensch zu sein.

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, 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'.

Vorwort
Spanning fifty years, In One Person is an breathtaking examination of sexual identity
