DETAILS

Author: Edmund White
Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf
ISBN / UPC: 0375400052
Condition: Good
Short Summary: Edmund White majored in sexual explicitness with his boldly autobiographical trilogy--A Boy's Own Story, The Beautiful Room Is Empty, and The Farewell Symphony. Now, explicitly as ever, he trains his unflinching eye on a new subject: a young man's death from AIDS. Austin is a fiftysomething American expat in Paris; Julien is a young married man he meets at the gym. Much to Austin's surprise, Julien calls him and soon they are sharing a bed and a life. The Married Man is White's Henry James novel: the first couple hundred pages show us a satirical portrait of young Julien as a stuffy Frenchman and a more elliptical portrait of Austin's apprehension of French culture through his lover. With Julien, "Austin was always learning things, not necessarily reasoned or researched information but rather all those thousands and thousands of brand names, turns of phrase, aversions and anecdotes that make up a culture as surely as do the moves in a child's game of hopscotch." But White wants to take us all the way to the end of this relationship. Austin is HIV positive, and it soon becomes clear that Julien has AIDS. As Julien's health unravels, the two travel to Providence, to Key West, to Venice, to Rome, and ultimately to Morocco. The author coins a darkly appropriate phrase for this urge to move: he calls it "AIDS-restlessness." White, in fact, unveils a whole gallery of startling images as Julien nears death. Julien is "the bowler hat descending into the live volcano." Thin and brown and bearded, he looks "like the Ottoman Empire in a turn-of-the-century political cartoon." Though he can't read it, Julien acquires a copy of the Koran. "It was the perfect book for a weary, dying man--pious, incomprehensible pages to strum, an ink cloud of unknowing." White has found a language both magical and clinical to describe a horrible death. --Claire Dederer

What is ADD TO WISHLIST?
If there is an item you would like to get via 2SWAP, but it is not currently available on the site, or you do not have a 2SWAP credit in your account, you can add that item to your 2SWAP wishlist. You can add a specific item to your list, or a category of items - for example, "Cook Books." Then, when a matching item becomes available, you will receive an e-mail notification so you can claim it (assuming you have at least one credit in your 2SWAP account).

What is WANT IT?
Click the Want It button if you see an item and you WANT IT. Assuming you have a credit in your account, you will be prompted to confirm the request, and then the member who owns the item will be asked to mail it to you asap and at no charge to you.

Note: For each book you request we will deduct 1 swap credit from your account.

What is HAVE IT?
Click the HAVE IT button if you already own an item and want to list it in your 2SWAP account so other members can request it. This is a bit quicker than entering the ISBN or UPC number.

Add item?
To get an item into your 2SWAP item list type in the ISBN or UPC code of the item (located next to the bar code). You can also tag the item in up to three categories, and write a comment about it.
