  • Marcel Proustby Edmund White

    Penguin Group US 1999; US$ 14.00

    If there is anyone worthy of producing an intimate biography of the enigmatic genius behind Remembrance of Things Past , it is Edmund White, himself an award- winning writer for whom Marcel Proust has long been an obsession. White introduces us not only to the recluse endlessly rewriting his one massive work through the night, but also the darling... more...

  • The Beautiful Room Is Emptyby Edmund White

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2010; US$ 15.95

    When the narrator of White's poised yet scalding autobiographical novel first embarks on his sexual odyssey, it is the 1950s, and America is "a big gray country of families on drowsy holiday." That country has no room for a scholarly teenager with guilty but insatiable stirrings toward other men. Moving from a Midwestern college to the Stonewall Tavern... more...

  • The Farewell Symphonyby Edmund White

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2010; US$ 17.00

    Following A Boy's Own Story (now a classic of American fiction) and his richly acclaimed The Beautiful Room Is Empty, here is the eagerly awaited final volume of Edmund White's groundbreaking autobiographical trilogy. Named for the work by Haydn in which the instrumentalists leave the stage one after another until only a single violin remains... more...

  • The Married Manby Edmund White

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2010; US$ 16.95

    In Edmund White's most moving novel yet, an American living in Paris finds his life transformed by an unexpected love affair. Austin Smith is pushing fifty, loveless and drifting, until one day he meets Julien, a much younger, married Frenchman. In the beginning, the lovers' only impediments are the comic clashes of culture, age, and temperament.... more...

  • Genetby Edmund White

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2010; US$ 26.95

    In this revelatory biography of Jean Genet, we have the first full-scale life of one of the great -- and controversial -- figures of twentieth-century literature. Edmund White shows us the writer in all his permutations: poet, dandy, homosexual, thief; a 'thug of genius', as Simone de Beauvoir called him. Moving from Genet's illegitimate birth in... more...

  • Forgetting Elenaby Edmund White

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2010; US$ 15.00

    Combining glittering wit, an atmosphere dense in social paranoia, and a breathtaking elegance and precision of language, White's first novel suggests a hilarious apotheosis of the comedy of manners. For, on the privileged island community where Forgetting Elena takes place, manners are everything. Or so it seems to White's excruciatingly self-conscious... more...

  • Caracoleby Edmund White

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2010; US$ 15.00

    In French caracole means "prancing"; in English, "caper." Both words perfectly describe this high-spirited erotic adventure. In Caracole , White invents an entire world where country gentry languish in decaying mansions and foppish intellectuals exchange lovers and gossip in an occupied city that resembles both Paris under the Nazis and 1980s New... more...

  • Skinned Aliveby Edmund White

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2010; US$ 15.95

    The eight stories in this erotic and heartbreaking collection are barometers of difference. They measure the distance between an American expatriate and the Frenchman who tutors him in table manners and rough sex; the gulf between a man dying of AIDS and his uncomprehending relatives. more...

  • The Burning Libraryby Edmund White

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2010; US$ 17.95

    Along with his groundbreaking essays that redefine politics, language, identity, and friendship in the light of gay experience and desire, this magisterial collection of 25 years of White's nonfiction writings includes dazzling subversive appreciations of cultural icons as diverse as Truman Capote and Cormac McCarthy, Robert Mapplethorpe and the singer... more...
