it was amazing
bookshelves: read-in-2017

Very similar in structure to The Stranger's Child, I loved this as much as I loved that, and The Line of Beauty, and The Swimming Pool library. Not an awful lot happens, although many years pass, but these are fairly ordinary lives. I just love how Hollinghurst writes, how he gets the tiny nuances of relationships: one man wanting another, who doesn't really love him back.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on a proof copy, and I'm going to see Hollinghurst speak in October.
