    PDF/EPUB The Married Man eBook µ The Married Epub / á alternate universe.co married download, The Married book, The Married Man PDFEdmund White follows up his acclaimed autobiographical trilogy A Boy's Own Story The Beautiful Room Is Empty The Farewell Symphony with The Married Man a richly textured novel about love sex and mortalityA sort of gay response to Thomas Mann's Death In Venice the book opens breezily enough with a pickup scene in a Parisian gym where the middle aged American furniture scholar Austin meets the younger and married French architect Julien The two exchange numbers and before long they're embarked on a love affair that takes them through chatty dinner parties an amicable divorce and then when AIDS rears its head some abrupt changes of locale and sentimentWhite's working on an ambitious Jamesian canvas here introducing us to half a dozen cultures in just over 300 pages And he succeeds The prose

    PDF/EPUB The Married Man eBook µ The Married Epub / á alternate universe.co married download, The Married book, The Married Man PDFThe premise of The Married Man sounded Alan Hollinghurst ish enough to ring my bell aging gay writer Austin an American living in Paris falls in love with a charmingly earnest younger man Julien who still seems caught up in his soon to be ex wife ChristineThe ingredients of a pleasing yarn are all there Edmund White is frank about sexuality and inuisitive about the oddities of Parisian society and the off kilter love story of Austin and Julien should be enough to glue the novel togetherUnfortunately it's really really notWhite writes well but I found his narrative tiringly digressive He can't seem to focus his attention long enough to really make the reader care about Austin and JulienThough there is real horror inherant in the novel th

    PDF/EPUB The Married Man eBook µ The Married Epub / á alternate universe.co married download, The Married book, The Married Man PDFOur preeminent gay author delivers a heartbreaking account of life and ultimately death with AIDS for a group of modern day expat friends splitting their time between Paris and the States While at times White's treatment seems aloof deferring to the supposed superiority of French culture and European manners his approach is a calculated one lulling the reading into a beautiful the man has an absolute gift for description and genteel world before unharnessing the fatal blow White shows the ephemerality of ueer life here the blanket rejection by the straight world and the subseuent necessity to create these

    PDF/EPUB The Married Man eBook µ The Married Epub / á alternate universe.co married download, The Married book, The Married Man PDFAn often beautiful and also sad commentary on gay men in the early days of AIDS Though one of our tribe's best known authors this is the first Edmund White book I've read and I'm actually uite torn by it His writing is fantastic no uestion and he can conjure Morocco Paris Providence or Key West so much that you could close your eyes and feel that you're there The part that leaves me torn is the often superficial childlike way in which he portrays gay men and I don't know if it is because that is not the way that I want people to think we are or because that is not the way that I want people to know that we sometimes are At times when my gut reaction was oh that's so over the top a few moments later I might recall some situation or someone I have known and went oh wait a second Certainly if not mostly for gay me

    PDF/EPUB The Married Man eBook µ The Married Epub / á alternate universe.co married download, The Married book, The Married Man PDFThis book is beautifully writtenThe themes contained within shame love guilt duty are the ingredients to many great tales of doomed romance However the fact that the relationships are conducted under an ever creeping shadow of HIV and AIDS lends this book a desperate and claustrophobic feel That said White never allows the story to become morose and moves it along at good pace never outstaying its welcome in any one locationThe characterisation is impeccable and wholly believable and while the descriptive elements of the disease's ravages are graphically portrayed White never all

    PDF/EPUB The Married Man eBook µ The Married Epub / á alternate universe.co married download, The Married book, The Married Man PDFThis was a strange book Edmund White doesn't bother trying to create likable characters nor does he stray away from taboos or any depiction of gay men that might be condemned as stereotypical or kinky I like that about him; he's never PC The way these characters wandered around travelling while one was dying from AIDS I found oddly compelling This is not a fun read nor is it conventional by any means It's bizarre and troubling and I generally kept wanting to turn the page

    PDF/EPUB The Married Man eBook µ The Married Epub / á alternate universe.co married download, The Married book, The Married Man PDFThe looming tragedy that I felt the whole time that I was reading this book is the only reason why I'm not giving it a five star rating I was expecting this book to be a bit melodramatic because of the subject matter AIDS and a lover dying but it's really of a realist's perfect tragic love storyWhite is an exuisite writer but I was so overwhelmed with sadness by the time I finished this book that I feel as if I need to lash out at the story's tragedy by blindly removing a perfect star from its rating to make myself feel better Most of the time when I read one of the author's books I usually just feel like I'm watching a beautiful film because of the very lyrical nature of White's prose However this time around I felt as if I was part of the film crew inevitably being

    PDF/EPUB The Married Man eBook µ The Married Epub / á alternate universe.co married download, The Married book, The Married Man PDFI had a hard time with this book on a number of levels The author is a wonderful writer and there are some lovely passages in the book especially those describing settings scenes and feelings about events that were very moving My problem was with the story and characters Having lived through the experience as a care partner for a dying person there was a tremendous amount of accuracy But the story itself was very drawn out characters seemed to age and yet the years did not seem to pass However the hardest thing was the fact that every gay character and there were many was undeveloped emotionally spiritually in almost every way dysfunctional There was no one you were really rooting for It was hard to care about anyone and they did not seem to care for one another even those that were supposed to be in love

    PDF/EPUB The Married Man eBook µ The Married Epub / á alternate universe.co married download, The Married book, The Married Man PDFObviously a necessary topic to be written and read about and there isn't any uestion around Edmund White's writing credentialsability but after about two thirds in I just did not care what happened to any of the characters whatsoever This was than just a realistic no airs and graces warts and all depiction of humans The characters were just completely unlikeableif you can get over that it's fine

    PDF/EPUB The Married Man eBook µ The Married Epub / á alternate universe.co married download, The Married book, The Married Man PDFFinding this hard to review It's beautifully written but the main character I found so horrible so selfish it was difficult to feel any sympathy for him whatsoever I read this 20 years ago and gave it four stars and I don't remember feeling that way towards any character Maybe I am older and wiser or maybe just bitter
