When Edmund White moved to Paris in 1983, leaving New York City in the midst of the AIDS crisis, he was 43 years old, couldn’t speak French, and only knew two people in the entire city. When he left 15 years later he was fluent in French, was a working journalist, and had made the acquaintance of everyone from Yves Saint Laurent to Catherine Deneuve to Michel Foucault. Inside a Pearl: My Years in Paris is his memoir about his experiences.
