Jack Holmes and His Friend by Edmund White

"I can’t remember the last time I had this much fun with a novel. Jack Holmes and His Friend is a brilliant, moving and hilarious book from America’s wittiest and most urbane writer. It’s the story of two men and their unlikely friendship told without sentimentality, but containing within itself the history of a time and a place, New York in the second half of the 20th Century, that is entirely unforgettable and true. A top-shelf addition to the Edmund White canon.”
—Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story
