Praise

‘Dazzling. Genet has found a scrupulous, meticulous chronicler in Edmund White.’ — Philip Henscher, The Guardian

‘An absorbing and magisterial biography…a labor of love in every sense. A comparable achievement [is] Richard Ellmann’s biography of Oscar Wilde.’

— John Bayley, The Evening Standard

‘Elegant, meticulous and wholly satisfying.’

— Brian Masters, The Sunday telegraph

‘White has caught the uncatchable man — the public Genet as well as the recluse: no better praise can be given a biographer.’

— Paul Bailey, The Daily Telegraph
