Francesca Lia Block had transcended gender because she so perfectly observes and tells a boy's own story—my story. His most recent novel is Jack Holmes and His Friend. A Boy's Own Story, Edmund White. Big Picture: "Boy's Own Adventure". I have never heard of such a story in any of the newspapers I've read and news I've watched. When “A Boy's Own Story” was initially published in 182, it was hailed as an “instant classic” as it deals with coming-out and coming-of-age and in this way it documents how gay life was. Book cover for A Boys Own Story Edmund White's novel is an important new work about American gay adolescence. The things we get worked up about. The author's travel experiences often set the backdrop for the boys' own adventure stories he wrote, or allowed him to imagine and describe places he hadn't visited. His real love was the late Brahms, the piano Intermezzi and especially the two clarinet sonatas. And this isn't genre writing either. Yet, reading “Baby Be-Bop,” I never thought about the author's gender. I've written a novel, “A Boy's Own Story,” based on my experiences at Cranbook. It's a novel about a gay adolescent who recalls his first sexual experience, his close relationship with his mother, and his longing for his father's affection. This week, I read A Boy's Own Story by Edmund White. He is also the author of a trilogy of autobiographical novels: A Boy's Own Story, The Beautiful Room is Empty, and The Farewell Symphony. It's crazy recapping a trip days later, but here goes.
