  1. I have always loved this man's work, and can't wait to read his latest. He has always had a compassionate heart for the "others" in his work, and I look forward to his take on this.

  2. Wow, this is pretty forward-thinking for a heterosexual author. He's likely ahead of the curve of most gay men when it comes to discussions of bisexuality and bi-phobia.

    I'm wondering if "Billy" will also encounter a love/hate relationship with "the B word," much as Cynthia Nixon recently did.

  4. Any new novel by Irving is a cause for celebration - he's one of the best American novelists still working.

    And remember, it was Irving who made transexual (as they said in those days) football player Roberta Muldoon a major character in WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP - it was brave 30+ years to show a strong friendship between a straight man and a transgendered m>f woman.

  5. So the narrator is a non monogamous bisexual man... who wondered why his lovers distrusted him? I guess it's easier to blame it all on other's biphobia and not his infidelity.
