Book DescriptionBest-selling novelist, memoirist, and biographer Edmund White displays his sharp wit and boundless erudition in 37 portraits of the writers, artists, and cultural icons who have captured his curiosity and imagination for the last 20 years. White is as compelling as he is unpretentious in these stories of his encounters with some of the most provocative writers, artists, and personalities of our time. Marcel Proust, Catherine Deneuve, David Geffen, Robert Mapplethorpe, Andre Gide, Michel Foucault, Andy Warhol, Vladimir Nabokov, Jean Genet, Jasper Johns, Allen Ginsberg, Yves Saint Laurent, and Elton John are among the cast.
