Jack Holmes and His Friend
Edmund White is an author of many novels, memoirs, essays and plays, as well as numerous articles and reviews. He is the recipient of the National Book Critics Circle Award and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
 
With the classic coming-of-age tale A Boy’s Own Story (1982), Edmund White cemented a place for himself, and for gay fiction, in the cultural consciousness. In biography, social history, travel writing, journalism, the short story and the novel, this prolific and versatile author has chronicled the gay experience in the United States from thePima County Public Library closeted 1950′s through the AIDS crisis. But as William Goldstein wrote in Publishers Weekly, “To call Edmund White  merely a gay writer is to oversimplify his work and his intentions.” The acuity, insight and compassion with which White explores the human condition transcends such a label.

 He will read from his latest novel, Jack Holmes and His Friend.
