Ngā whakaahuatanga whakarei nā Syndetics:

With an introduction by Alan Hollinghurst.It was his power that stupefied me and made me regard my knowledge as nothing more than hired cleverness he might choose to show off at a dinner party.A Boy's Own Story traces an unnamed narrator's coming-of-age during the 1950s. Beset by aloof parents, a cruel sister, and relentless mocking from his peers, the boy struggles with his sexuality, seeking consolation in art and literature, and in his own fantastic imagination as he fills his head with romantic expectations. The result is a book of exquisite poignancy and humour that moves towards a conclusion which will allow the boy to leave behind his childhood forever.Originally published in 1982 as the first of Edmund White's trilogy of autobiographical novels, A Boy's Own Story became an instant classic for its pioneering portrayal of homosexuality. Lyrical and powerfully evocative, this is an American literary treasure.PRAISE FOR A BOY'S OWN STORY"With A Boy's Own Story, American literature is larger by one classic novel." The Washington Post"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

Originally published: New York : E.P. Dutton, 1994. As Picador classic first published: 2016.
