White, Edmund: A Boy's Own Story (eBook)

Originally published in 1982 as the first of Edmund White's trilogy of autobiographical novels, "A Boy's Own Story" became an instant classic for its pioneering portrayal of homosexuality. The book's unnamed narrator, growing up during the 1950s, is beset by aloof parents, a cruel sister, and relentless mocking from his peers, compelling him to seek out works of art and literature as solace-and to uncover new relationships in the struggle to embrace his own sexuality. Lyrical and poignant, with powerful evocations of shame and yearning, this is an American literary treasure.
