Reviews

"There's a talent at work in this brave new novel that -- as Prospero said -- 'frees all faults.' "--The Washington Post
"In One Person gives a lot. It's funny, as you would expect. It's risky in what it exposes....Tolerance, in a John Irving novel, is not about anything goes. It's what happens when we face our own desires honestly, whether we act on them or not."--Jeanette Winterson "The New York Times Book Review "
"It is impossible to imagine the American - or international - literary landscape without John Irving....He has sold tens of millions of copies of his books, books that have earned descriptions like epic and extraordinary and controversial and sexually brave. And yet, unlike so many writers in the contemporary canon, he manages to write books that are both critically acclaimed and beloved for their sheer readability. He is as close as one gets to a contemporary Dickens in the scope of his celebrity and the level of his achievement." --Time
