• "This wonderful novel is an epic, moving survey of 70 years of sexual revolution"

    The Times
  • "Deeply enjoyable... a comic celebration of polymorphous perversity, and of literature"

  • "Irving has rarely written with the gorgeous poise and control he musters here"

    Financial Times
  • "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
  • "A brave and hugely affecting depiction of how in one life (sexual and otherwise) we contain multitudes"
