Item description for Original Youth: The Real Story of Edmund White's Boyhood by David Leavitt Keith Fleming...

It isn't often that a memoirist gets the biographic treatment, but the story of Edmund White's youth was too dramatic to resist. In this bracing true-life tale, Keith Fleming, White's nephew whom he adopted, captures a particularly unusual childhood. Forced to be a confidante to his unhinged mother, terrified and attracted to his imperious father, the teenager White became a Buddhist, a cruiser of hustlers and married men, and an FBI drug informant on his way to ultimate fame as a leading gay literary figure. Drawing on personal knowledge, letters, photographs, and extensive interviews with those closest to "Eddie," Fleming neither exploits his subject nor sugar-coats him. Original Youth is a rich portrait of a complex subject and a "wild child" who managed to survive and flourish against all odds.
