Inside a Pearl: My Years in Paris

Sinopsis

When Edmund White moved to Paris in 1983, leaving New York City in the midst of the AIDS crisis, he was forty-three years old, couldn’t speak French, and only knew two people in the entire city. But in middle age, he discovered the new anxieties and pleasures of mastering a new culture. When he left fifteen years later to take a teaching position in the U.S., he was fluent enough to broadcast on French radio and TV, and in his work as a journalist, he’d made the acquaintance of everyone from Yves Saint Laurent to Catherine Deneuve to Michel Foucault. He’d also developed a close friendship with an older woman, Marie-Claude, through which he’d come to understand French life and culture in a deeper way.

La opinión de nuestros inspiradores

  • Álvaro Llamas

    A principios de los años ochenta a White se le presentó la oportunidad de mudarse a París por unos meses y, al final, acabó viviendo allí más de una década. Al igual que hiciese con el Nueva York de los sesenta y setenta, en un tono exquisito y de lo más divertido, y con gran talento para el chismorreo, White nos descubre sabrosas historietas sobre el “tout Paris”. Una auténtica delicia de libro.
