About the Author

An esteemed novelist and cultural critic, Edmund White is the author of many books, including the autobiographical novel A Boy's Own Story; a previous memoir, My Lives; and most recently a biography of poet Arthur Rimbaud. White lives in New York City and teaches writing at Princeton University.


'An open-throttled tour of New York City during the bad old days of the 1960s and early '70s... it's all here in exacting and eye-popping detail' New York Times 'Energetic evocation of Manhatten in the Sixties and absorbing insight into the life alongside a constellation of greats of the American literary and gay scenes' Harper's Bazaar 'This splendid book is at once fascinating social history and sublimely detailed gossip' John Irving 'A wonderful deepening and broadening of Edmund White's great life-work ... Everything he says about love and friendship is so penetrating and true ... a marvellous book' Alan Hollinghurst A graceful memoir of a decidedly ungraceful time in the life of New York City... A welcome portrait of a time and place long past, and much yearned for. Kirkus Reviews
