When Edmund White left the Midwest after college he had an opportunity to pursue a Ph.D. at Harvard. Instead, he followed a lover to New York City. There he arrives broke and unknown, struggling to express himself as a gay man even as he holds out hope of being »cured«. Present at the Stonewall uprising in 1969, White witnesses the start of the gay movement and gradually begins to embrace his identity. After his first meeting with James Merrill, to whom he nervously reads aloud from his unpublished novel, White encounters icons from William Burroughs to Susan Sontag, from Truman Capote to Robert Mapplethorpe. Absorbing and filtering these heady influences, White finds his own artistic voice just as the city's high culture explodes in creativity. Within a decade, White will be the most celebrated gay writer in the world.
