This review is from: Jack Holmes and His Friend (Hardcover)
For me, this is White's best book in a while. It centres round two characters - Jack (gay) and Will (straight) and situates both of them evocatively in their 1960s/70s period in a fashionable New York. The other characters in the book are vivid and credible and White conjures up a whole world of a society at work, play and under all the pressures of human life. The thing I liked best, apart from White's genius with words, is the fact that both central characters are not extraordinary either as people or in their respective professions; yet their stories are compelling. I was also very taken with the fact that Jack does not have a great awakening to being gay; it just sort of happens. Many of us will have been there.
