John Irving: "In One Person: A Novel" | The Diane Rehm Show from WAMU and NPR
"John Irving’s latest novel, "In One Person." is narrated by a young bisexual man named Billy Abbot. As a teenager at a New England all-boys prep school in the 1950s, he has crushes on "the wrong people," including the town's transgendered librarian and the wrestling team's golden boy. In the 1980s, he witnesses the horror of the AIDS epidemic. Throughout his life, he experiences the loneliness of knowing no one person can fully satisfy him. Irving first introduced the term, “sexual suspect” three decades ago in his National Book Award- winning novel, "The World According to Garp." He joins Diane to discuss why he has returned to the issues of sexual identity and intolerance in his thirteenth novel." - Jenny H. from Bookmarklet

I wonder why he thinks he can ever be fully satisfied? - Todd Hoff
