“With A Boy’s Own Story American literature is larger by one classic novel.”
The Washington Post Book World

“Edmund White has crossed J. D. Salinger with Oscar Wilde to create an extraordinary novel.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Every so often a novel comes along that is so ambitious in its intention and so confident of its voice that it reminds us what a singular and potent thing a novel can be. One of these is A Boy’s Own Story.”
San Francisco Chronicle
