10 Great Beach (Or Pool) Reads: Sedaris, Capote, And More

“In One Person” by John Irving

The central character in John Irving’s latest book, which was just released in paperback earlier this year, is Billy Abbott, a young bisexual man who falls in love with an older transgendered woman, Mrs. Frost. This coming-of-age story about a teenager’s sexual awakening is peppered with Irving’s usual laugh out loud humor and quirky, offbeat characters. Irving, who identifies as heterosexual, said he spent several years conceptualizing the novel, and drew inspiration from his own bisexual desires as a young adult.
