'Elegant, meticulous and wholly satisfying.'
-- Brian Masters, The Sunday telegraph
'White has caught the uncatchable man -- the public Genet as well as the recluse: no better praise can be given a biographer.'

Excellent book. I was inimidated by the size of this biography and had no intention of reading it when I picked it up from reserve at the library. It's fascinating, reads like an historical novel.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
