This is the first book of Edmund White's trilogy of autobiographical novels. A quick read about growing-up "abnormally" and emotionally isolated during the conservative 1950s and his relationships with his divorced parents, a group of friends and his psychiatrist who said that he could cure his homosexuality. I didn't quite enjoy the book but it's worth the time though. Favorite parts include the encounter between him and his friend Kevin and the night when the narrator(obviously the author of course) and his group of friends visited a brothel house.
