No one has been more frank, lucid, and entertaining about growing up gay in Middle America than Edmund White. Best known for his autobiographical novels, starting with A Boy's Own Story, White here takes fiction out of his story and delivers the facts of his life in all their shocking and absorbing verity. In My Lives, White shares his enthusiasms and his passions, and he introduces us to his lovers and predilections.
“Edmund White gave up drinking, smoking, and Paris, too, despite which he’s writing better than ever.”
“One of the most brilliant and distinguished authors at work in America today.”
“My Lives is a brave book because White lets it all hang out.”
-Rocky Mountain News
“Delicious reading...the story of White’s life is fully engrossing.”
-Boston Sunday Globe
“It is White’s astounding use of language and structure that makes My Lives a scintillating read.”
“The great strength of My Lives is its ruthless honesty.”
-San Francisco Chronicle
“White the humane observer and eloquent stylist can make you stand up and cheer.”
-The Oregonian (Portland)
