Book Review: City Boy

City Boy City Boy by Edmund White

My rating: 1 of 5 stars
This book just did not hold my interest at all. I wouldn't have finished it but I received it through GoodReads First Reads program so I felt like I had to.

City Boy is author Edmund White's account of his years in New York as a struggling author. I didn't feel any emotion coming out of him. It felt like he was just writing a laundry list account of his activities and so it was hard to connect with him. Also, he name dropped a lot and it was clear that I was supposed to be impressed but I only recognized a handful of names that were dropped. It was hard to keep everyone straight too – he mentioned dozens of people.
