A Saint From Texas Overview

In A Saint From Texas, Edmund White, a formidable figure in American fin-de-millennium realism, covers 40 years of a complex relationship between twin Texas sisters born into privilege. Yvonne Crawford, who serves as narrator, seeks sophistication and culture as the wife of a dissolute French aristocrat. Her sister Yvette finds fulfillment as a Catholic nun serving the poor in rural Colombia. Among other themes, White explores sexual identity, the tension between intellect and desire, stoicism, loneliness, and the dynamic of salvation.
