Publisher's Summary

Combining glittering wit, an atmosphere dense in social paranoia, and a breathtaking elegance and precision of language, White's first novel suggests a hilarious apotheosis of the comedy of manners. For, on the privileged island community where Forgetting Elena takes place, manners are everything. Or so it seems to White's excruciatingly self-conscious young narrator who desperately wants to be accepted in this world where everything from one's bathroom habits to the composition of "spontaneous" poetry is subject to rigid conventions.

Narrator not for me

I am a big fan of Edmund White's non-fiction, and I was excited to dive into this novel. However, the narrator's style put me off, and I found it very difficult to get through this one.
