Book Description: Pan MacMillan, United Kingdom, 1986. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 197 x 130 mm. Brand New Book. Edmund White has crossed The Catcher in the Rye with De Profundis, J. D. Salinger with Oscar Wilde, to create an extraordinary novel. It is a clear and sinister pool in which goldfish and piranhas both swim. The subject of A Boy s Own Story is less a particular boy than the bodies and souls of American men; the teachers and masters; the lovers, brothers, hustlers and friends; the flawed fathers who would be kings to their own sons who should be princes New York Times Review A breathtaking evocation of a young boy growing up in the fifties in an American town .The book s extraordinary power lies in the tension between the obsessive longing and then moments of denial, the attempts to transcend or avoid the inescapable fact of the boy s sexuality .There have been many good novels of adolescence; this one surpasses them all Jeremy Seabrook, New Society The boy s self-portrait shines with authenticity, he is an extraordinary but plausible mixture of sweetness and deviousness .Add to this the fact that White s prose is marvellously sensual while his eye is sharply satiric and you have something of the flavour of an outstanding text which should appeal to a wide audience. The book goes beyond its homosexual theme to say something about the whole process of growing up Robert Nye, Guardian. Bookseller Inventory # AA79780330281515
