Courtesy of Avalon Publishing, this week’s swag prize is Chaos: A Novella and Stories, the new book from Edmund White, revered author of the must-have trilogy for fans of gay literature: A Boy’s Own Story, The Beautiful Room Is Empty, and The Farewell Symphony. And many of you may fondly recall 1977’s The Joy Of Gay Sex, which White coauthored with Charles Silverstein. (That book taught 18-year old Joe a lot.)
The press blurb for Chaos:
When a respected older man clings to the values and mores of the liberated 1970s, when he pursues sex relentlessly and his reputation suffers, Chaos ensues. White explores different aspects of aging, romance, and sex, inviting his readers to come with him to Florida, the Greek Isles, and Turkey — and into the chaotic gay demimonde of contemporary New York.
