A Boy’s Own Story Edmund White

The first of Edmund White’s trilogy of autobiographical novels, this potent book follows an unnamed narrator, growing up during the 1950s, on his search for self-identity against the constraints of nuclear family life and conventional Mid-Western attitudes. Ground-breaking in its lyrical portrayal of homosexuality, this is a novel about child sexuality, longing, love and betrayal. Think J. D. Salinger meets Oscar Wilde.
