Description
 

When the narrator of Whites poised yet scalding autobiographical novel first embarks on his sexual odyssey, it is the 1950s, and America is a big gray country of families on drowsy holiday. That country has no room for a scholarly teenager with guilty but insatiable stirrings toward other men. Moving from a Midwestern college to the Stonewall Tavern on the night of the first gay uprising--and populated by eloquent queens, butch poseurs, and a fearfully incompetent shrink--The Beautiful Room is Emptyconflates the acts of coming out and coming of age. With intelligence, candor, humor--and anger--White explores the most insidious aspects of oppression.... An impressive novel.--Washington Post book World
