October 7th, 2009

“Love is a source of anxiety until it is a source of boredom; only friendship feeds the spirit.”

Novelist Edmund White, as quoted in a Bloomberg.com review by Craig Seligman of White’s new memoir, City Boy. Seligman: “What a blast it must have been to be gay in New York in the 60’s and 70’s, especially if you were, like Edmund White, young and attractive and smart and talented and a major slut.”
