Edmund White won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Genet: A Biography and has received the Award for Literature from the National Academy of Arts and Letters, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and in 1993 was made a Chevalier de L’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government. He is noted for writing successfully in several genres, including cultural criticism, fiction, travelogue, biography, drama, and autobiography. His ambitious autobiographical tetralogy includes A Boy's Own Story (1982), The Beautiful Room Is Empty (1988), The Farewell Symphony (1997), and The Married Man (2000). His most recent book is his first historical novel, Fanny: A Fiction. White has taught at many universities, and currently directs the Creative Writing program at Princeton University.
