Line of Beauty
Author: Alan Hollinghurst
Alan Hollinghurst's book takes up where his previous acclaimed work, "The Swimming-Pool Library" ends. "The Line of Beauty" traces the further history of a decade of change and tragedy. In the summer of 1983, 20-year-old Nick Guest moves into an attic room in the Notting Hill home of the Feddens as the Thatcher boom-years unfold.

Great, sad, bitter, lovely. If you like studies of interactions between rich and middle class, or studies of gay life in 80s london (no holds barred), you will like it.

Stunningly skilled, lucid, writing. Hollinghurst takes us deep within a decade, a moment, a conversation. He takes us wherever he wants, in fact. One of the best books I've read recently.

A hard read - taking me a while to wade through it. Really my life may be too short to finish it
