In One Person remains a big, entertaining and unstintingly generous read, bulging with incident and able to make every member of its large cast entirely memorable.

In One Person isn’t a coming-of-age story or a gay novel or a requiem for the departed. This is a wonderfully strange and funny tale of a confused boy who grows up to be a confident man. Yes, Billy is a little odd. But then again, who isn’t?

In the end, this is where "In One Person" stumbles, when it tries to fuse social commentary with art. That isn't to say one can't write a political novel, but the politics have to emerge from the characters, not the other way around.
