Edmund White

Na London Review of Books, recensão de My Lives, de Edmund White.
«White’s preoccupation here, as in much of his fiction, is with betrayal: whether it is possible to betray oneself, and whether it is possible not to betray other people; and how, if at all, these things are connected. So it is not surprising that Genet is the subject of one of his finest, most measured books, or that Genet, a man who lived a radically unprecedented gay life, posed a particular kind of problem for him both because of that life and because he wrote about it at once so lyrically and so starkly.»
