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.

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.

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