“Paris may well be White's pearl, but he is in fact the real pearl ... This wonderfully eccentric, conversational and personalised cultural history contains the essence of Edmund White … Entertaining and wry, White is worldly-wise and wise” – Eileen Battersby, Irish Times
“Edmund White writing about his Paris years, with walk-on parts for Catherine Deneuve, Yves Saint-Laurent and other assorted members of the French glitterati? That'd be Inside a Pearl” – Scotsman
“There is at once something artfully canny and beguilingly innocent about Inside a Pearl … You want to hold on to him, will him to live more, live longer and write about more years” – Independent
“We are lucky to have him still publishing … diverting, affectionate as well as bitchy, and full of tips” – London Evening Standard
“In the end, this dazzling memoir isn't just a love song to a city – a city “so calm” it is “like living inside a pearl” – but profoundly moving elegy to a friend” – Sunday Times
