Edmund White: Fanny

Hosted by

In Fanny: A Fiction (Ecco), Edmund White turns himself into Mrs. Trollope, the Victorian traveler who, in her last year, narrates a biography of her scandalous friend, the feminist Fanny Wright. White juggles history and fiction, vanity and fame, in this fractured mirror-novel about age and memory.
