In One Person by John Irving


Billy is in anguish, he has a crush on an androgynous librarian, Miss Frost, and a crush on a fine-looking boy at school. He's worried that this isn't normal. Thankfully, Mrs. Hadley, a trusted adult, assures him that "This isn't criminal activity!" 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.
