White, Christian

by Christopher Stoddard

MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingConversations
711,971,891 (3.5)None
Fiction. LGBT Studies. Introduction by Bruce Benderson. The borderline lifestyle of twenty-year-old Christian White is a carnival of drugs and sex, accessorized by designer clothes and frequent stealing or scamming. Underneath the decadence are haunting memories of childhood abuse, the death of a brother and a father's criminal past. Expecting to make a fresh start, Christian relocates from San Francisco to New York, just as his friends are being rounded up by the police; but life only spirals farther out of control in the new setting. Instead of drugs, Christian's existence is beginning to center around sex. He has let himself slip into prostitution, and he may have even played a part in the murder of a successful architect, although he can't remember the evening entirely. It has become increasingly clear to Christian that the only way to save himself is to come to terms with the past, no matter how painful—or how dangerous—the trip.… (more)

A really fantastic novel. The only reason I give it four and not five is that there are a few chapters toward the end that I felt lost some of the punch of the earlier chapters. The pacing is really great (Stoddard uses super short chapters to keep the speed up, which is something I did in my own novel). HIGHLY recommended. ( )
