Lambda-Award-winning author and editor Tom Cardamone brings together a diverse collection of queer writers and their supporters to celebrate the rich, innovative works of Edmund White, the eminent memoirist and author of the American literature classic, A Boy’s Own Story, not to mention other outstanding works of fiction and several lauded nonfiction works that include Genet: A Biography.

In Crashing Cathedrals: Edmund White by the Book, established writers, new voices, journalists, friends, former students, White’s husband, and a recent editor/publisher provide personal appraisals of White’s work in the order in which his books were published. The collection forms a unique tribute-cum-biography of the most significant contemporary gay writer in the world.
