Whitney is a beautifully written novel of a complicated love and a life of raw emotion.  The prose flows seamlessly;  the characters are believable and there is little that will not resonate with an honest, open audience.  My only caveat, and I offer this reluctantly, is the chapter that focuses on the narrator’s sex life.   It diminishes the narrator’s previously complex relationship with Whitney to a bodily function.  Joyously, it is only one chapter and the complexity of their life together, apart, with family and friends continues, like a well constructed symphony to a satisfying crescendo.
