LOS ANGELES - Jan. 15, 2024 - PRLog -- Independent book publisher Itna Press is set to re-release Crashing Cathedrals: Edmund White by the Book (Itna, Jan. 23, 2024) on the five-year anniversary of its launch. This literary triumph, edited by Lambda Literary Award-winning author Tom Cardamone, brings together a diverse collection of queer writers and their supporters to honor the unparalleled contributions of literary legend Edmund White, author of the internationally celebrated coming-of-age novel A Boy's Own Story and the groundbreaking biography Genet: A Biography. In Crashing Cathedrals, Cardamone orchestrates a unique tribute-cum-biography by assembling established writers, new voices, journalists, and White's husband, friends, and former students.

The collection unfolds in the chronological order of White's books, providing a comprehensive journey through his rich and innovative body of work. Each contributor offers a personal appraisal, offering readers an intimate glimpse into the impact and significance of White's writings. This carefully curated anthology serves as a testament to the profound influence of the most significant contemporary gay writer in the world. Among the distinguished voices contributing their appreciations are Alysia Abbott, Michael Carroll, Allan Gurganus, Zachary Lazar, Sarah Schulman, Lynne Tillman, Colm Tóibín, Charlie Vázquez, and many others. Their diverse perspectives create a mosaic that captures the essence of White's literary legacy and person.

Crashing Cathedrals: Edmund White by the Book is not merely a collection of essays; it is a celebration of a literary icon whose work has resonated with readers worldwide, and is essential to the libraries of those who appreciate the depth and breadth of queer literature.
