In One Person

By Irving, John




The World According to Garp, which won the National Book Award in 1980, was John Irving’s fourth novel and his first international bestseller; it also became a George Roy Hill film. Tony Richardson wrote and directed the adaptation for the screen of The Hotel New Hampshire (1984). Irving’s novels are now translated into 35 languages, and he has had nine international bestsellers. Worldwide, the Irving novel most often called “an American classic” is A Prayer for Owen Meany (1989), the portrayal of an enduring friendship at a time when the Vietnam War had its most divisive effect on the United States.
 
In 1992, John Irving was inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in Stillwater, Oklahoma. (He competed as a wrestler for 20 years, until he was 34, and coached the sport until he was 47.) In 2000, Irving won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Cider House Rules, a Lasse Hallström film that earned seven Academy Award nominations. Tod Williams wrote and directed The Door in the Floor, the 2004 film adapted from Irving’s ninth novel, A Widow for One Year.
 
In One Person is John Irving’s 13th novel.

IRVING, John

NY: Simon & Schuster. (2012). The advance reading copy. Signed by the author on the title page. Scarce signed even in the trade edition: Irving did not do any signings on his author tour promoting the novel, explaining that he was no longer willing to sign books at readings per his doctor's warnings, as it would hinder his ability to write his manuscripts by hand, as he prefers to do. He did sign a handful of copies of the trade edition at his local bookstore; and he signed some number of bookplates as able. We have seen only one other signed advance copy. Fine in self-wrappers. First Edition. Softcover. Fine.

IRVING, John

New York: Random House, 2012. First Edition. Very good/very good. SIGNED by Irving on the title page (not a bookplate signature). First edition. Signatures for this book are notoriously scarce as Irving did not sign books on his tour as he did not want to further injure his hand. While Irving signed a number of plates, signatures on the actual volume are rare. Very good in a very good dust jacket with autograph sticker and some shelfwear.

Publication date: May 8, 2012. Adoption-Link was founded by Edmund White's sister Margaret to find loving homes for vulnerable children. John Irving writes a sweeping narrative of the life of Billy Abbott, a bisexual man who struggles throughout the course of a half-century with his sexual identity and desire for meaningful connections. Although Irving fans will find here some familiar elements (wrestling, absent fathers), Billy is a wholly original--and unforgettable--hero.

If I do, all were signed the same day, at the same signing event, at the same time, using the same pen by the author. I use only one listing photo of the signed book page for all the listings, and each signature page, naturally, may be slightly different. If you have any questions, please ask. BS40775.Like New

Irving, John

New York: Simon & Schuster, 2012. First edition, Hardcover, New in dust jacket, “A compelling novel of desire, secrecy, and sexual identity, 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 of In One Person, 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. His most political novel since The Cider House Rules and A Prayer for Owen Meany, John Irving's In One Person is a poignant tribute to Billy's friends and lovers - a theatrical cast of characters who defy category and convention. Not least, In One Person is an intimate and unforgettable portrait of the solitariness of a bisexual man who is dedicated to making himself ‘worthwhile.’”
