Simon & Schuster will publish John Irving‘s upcoming novel, In One Person. The first-person book will explore the life of a bisexual man.
Publisher Jonathan Karp had this statement: “It is a major work, both timeless and deeply relevant to our times … We are honored to be John Irving’s publisher — it’s a privilege I have dreamed of since I was a young Random House editor and was introduced to John by his first editor, Joe Fox. We expect In One Person to be a literary event and a subject of intense conversation in the summer of 2012.”
