New Book of the Week Title: “A Boy’s Own Story“
From the back of the book: “In this, the first of Edmund White’s acclaimed trilogy of autobiographical novels, one boy’s coming-of-age during the 1950s becomes one of the most groundbreaking portrayals of gay life in American fiction. Ridiculed by his classmates, the unnamed narrator finds solace in literature, works of art, and his own fantastic imagination. But as he strives to forge new friendships, his yearning to be loved by the men in his life evokes a crushing sense of shame—and a struggle to accept who he is. Deeply affecting, A Boy’s Own Story is a stunning achievement.”
