review 1: I really wanted this to be good, because I've read some Edmund White, and at the beginning it felt good, because here was that Edmund White again, the master of beautiful comparisons, the one who thought of the sun that "pulsed feebly like the aura of a migraine that doesn't deve...

review 1: I'm a fan of Edmund White as a writer--- I very much enjoyed "Forgetting Elena" and "Nocturnes for the King of Naples" ---and as a stylist. I'm also a fan of memoirs of literary New York in the 1960s and 1970s. White's "City Boy" satisfies on both counts--- well-crafted, witty, a...

review 1: Usually books I read get 3-4 stars. This is the result of picking books with subject matter that interests me, or books written by authors I enjoy reading. Rimbaud: The Double Life of a Rebel is no exception. In this case, however, I didn't choose the book because I am a fan of R...
La doppia vita di Rimbaud (2009)

review 1: Strictly speaking this is not a biography of Rimbaud nor does White claim it to be. In fact he recommends the best biographies in English and French in his bibliography. He also states clearly that he is indebted for his research to Graham Robb's biography. He makes no claim to o...
