This is an honest and perceptive “account of one person’s struggle with the demons within”, a sort of therapeutic cleansing of the soul. The early part of the tale explores the relationship between Simon and his slightly older friend Daniel in infant-school days, and their growing homosexual rapport. That love, and its sexual culmination and ecstasy, will far outlive its relatively short duration and will be present as a memory, regret or influence throughout Simon’s life. Although that life is ...more

I've thought about writing a review for this book for at least a couple of months and in the end have decided there's nothing more I can add to what's already been written by Leland Hall.

That parts two and three serve a mainly cathartic purpose is clear. In part one we see at the end Simon almost completely dependent on Daniel and throughout Simon's life, even though Daniel is absent, nothing changes.

Patrick now lives in the north of England with his wife and has his son and granddaughters nearby. Much of his life is reflected in the biographical trilogy "The Clouds Still Hang", so to repeat too many biographical details here would be something of a 'spoiler'!
Book 1 of this trilogy, "The Book of Daniel" is available separately.
