I'm surprised no one has mentioned Edmund White's short story "His
Biographer" and its relation to VN...

It's in:
--BEST AMERICAN GAY FICTION 1996 (edited by Brian Bouldrey)--which, by
the way, also features your humble servant
--SKINNED ALIVE, his collection of short stories.
--I wish I could remember where it was first published.

There are plenty other VNesque things in White's stories, like the dead
speaking in mysterious ways in "An Oracle" (my favorite piece of
White's, incidentally).


Cheers,
Aldo
