The Burning Library is a collection of White's most enduring essays through the past 25 years. He begins with "The Gay Philosopher," a powerful statement on the centrality of friendship in gay life, written just after the Stonewall riots. Finishing the work with "The Personal is Political," a discussion of the place of queer fiction in the current dust-storm of literary identity politics, White constructs a fascinating portrait of his times and of himself.
