NEW YORK — Acclaimed gay author and Princeton lecturer, Edmund White, is recovering well from his second stroke, according to a post on the writer’s Facebook page signed by his partner, Michael Carroll.

White is the author of such books as ‘A Boy’s Own Story’ and ‘The Beautiful Room is Empty.’ The author suffered his first stroke in November, but Carroll’s post indicated he is faring better this time.

“I’m busy but not as busy as the first time around since he’s in an excellent facility getting great care and being forced through a great number of daily therapies,” Carroll posted to White’s page.

White, who had always been known as an “anti-assimilationist” who eschewed talk of same-sex marriage, surprised many when two weeks ago, he followed President Obama’s announcement and penned a column for the Guardian newspaper coming out himself in favor of marriage for same-sex couples, and announcing his own engagement.
