A Saint From Texas


Sisters. In a novel by Edmund White titled, A Saint from Texas, identical twin sisters take different roads away from their East Texas start in life. Their daddy’s land provided an oil fortune to nurture their dreams. Yvonne decides to join Parisian society, while Yvette aligns with the poor in Columbia. White takes us across a half century and treats us to fine writing infused with great wit and joy. There’s Texas-sized exuberance on these pages, and wisdom about the nature of human behavior. White’s characters are finely drawn with all the complexity and foibles of all of us. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase A Saint from Texas from
