Publisher's Summary

Best-selling novelist, memoirist, and biographer Edmund White displays his sharp wit and boundless erudition in 37 portraits of the writers, artists, and cultural icons who have captured his curiosity and imagination for the last 20 years. White is as compelling as he is unpretentious in these stories of his encounters with some of the most provocative writers, artists, and personalities of our time. Marcel Proust, Catherine Deneuve, David Geffen, Robert Mapplethorpe, Andre Gide, Michel Foucault, Andy Warhol, Vladimir Nabokov, Jean Genet, Jasper Johns, Allen Ginsberg, Yves Saint Laurent, and Elton John are among the cast.

Ok, but not what I was hoping for

What did you like best about Arts and Letters? What did you like least?

The idea about righting by starting: I remember....

Would you recommend Arts and Letters to your friends? Why or why not?

No. I really only bought it for the sections on artists, which are very short and don't provide the sort of insight I was hoping for

Could you see Arts and Letters being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No
