This is an auction for THE BEAUTIFUL ROOM IS EMPTY by Edmund White.

"White, generally recognized as one of the most influential of modern gay authors, continues the coming-of-age tale begun in a Boy's Own Story. He follows our nameless hero from his final year at prep school in the mid-1950s through his cruisy but self-deprecating college years to the "turning point" in his life - the famous Stonewall uprising of 1969 in which the clients of a New York gay bar stood up to the policemen trying to close it down. What emerges is the picture of a young man desperately struggling to come to terms with himself, a struggle that is a universal even if the context for every individual is different. Artfully constructed, this work clearly transcends its "gay" theme. Explicit at times, it remains highly recommended."
- Library Journal (US)
