Reviews

Paris may well be White's pearl, but he is in fact the real pearl ... This wonderfully eccentric, conversational and personalised cultural history contains the essence of Edmund White ... Entertaining and wry, White is worldly-wise and wise * Eileen Battersby, Irish Times * Edmund White writing about his Paris years, with walk-on parts for Catherine Deneuve, Yves Saint-Laurent and other assorted members of the French glitterati? That'd be Inside a Pearl * Scotsman * There is at once something artfully canny and beguilingly innocent about Inside a Pearl ... You want to hold on to him, will him to live more, live longer and write about more years * Independent * We are lucky to have him still publishing ... diverting, affectionate as well as bitchy, and full of tips * London Evening Standard * In the end, this dazzling memoir isn't just a love song to a city - a city "so calm" it is "like living inside a pearl" - but profoundly moving elegy to a friend * Sunday Times *
