White's books include ''The Joy of Gay Sex'', written with Charles Silverstein (1977); his trilogy of semi-autobiographic novels, ''A Boy's Own Story'' (1982), ''The Beautiful Room Is Empty'' (1988) and ''The Farewell Symphony'' (1997); and his biography of Jean Genet.

White has also written biographies of three French writers: Jean Genet, Marcel Proust and Arthur Rimbaud. He is the namesake of the Edmund White Award for Debut Fiction, awarded annually by Publishing Triangle. Provided by Wikipedia
