'This biography is elegant meticulous and wholly satisfying' Sunday Telegraph

This biography of Genet explores the perverse extremes of his life and writing, and separates the fact from the mythology which was fostered by Genet himself. Edmund White has interviewed lovers, friends, publishers and acquaintances, and has drawn from material, from letters (a number published here for the first time) and other original sources.
