White has since published more than 20 books, including “Genet: A Biography,” (1993), about the French dramatist Jean Genet, for which he won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Biography. White, a professor of creative writing at Princeton University, reads from his latest work, “Rimbaud: The Double Life of a Rebel,” a biography of the French poet Arthur Rimbaud, as part of Hunter College’s Distinguished Writers Series.
