About The Farewell Symphony. Following A Boy’s Own Story (now a classic of American fiction) and his richly acclaimed The Beautiful Room Is Empty, here is the eagerly awaited final volume of Edmund White’s groundbreaking autobiographical trilogy.

Music moved on after modernism, argues Will Self. But whatever happened to fiction?
