Dwight Garner…an open-throttled tour of New York City during the bad old days of the 1960s and early '70s: crime, graffiti, garbage in the streets, Steppenwolf and Foghat leaking out of car tape decks, gay men wearing whistles around their necks to summon help when ambushed by gangs. These bad old days morphed into a star-spangled gay coming of age in the decade after Stonewall…City Boy may lack some of the fineness and intensity of My Lives, which remains the essential Edmund White memoir, the one to read first. But this one is salty and buttery, for sure.
