I've tried to read the book several different times during the time the book's been on my possession but failed everytime. I'm not getting much out of the book and can't get over the page 16 or so. I feel bad cause I've heard so much good about the author and feel that if only I could pass the first 50 pages maybe it's easier for me to read it and I actually start liking it? But despite my ponderings I'm letting this go. I'm sure it crosses my paths at some point in future and if it happens I'm giving it another go, I promise.

I've never heard of the author, but the book seemed interesting. It may take some time before I can start reading this book, but it will be there waiting for the right time. Thanks :)

Now I've read this book. It took a while to read it. I had to take breaks every now and then, because it was so intense. The story has great richness and the gay life is described very sharply. Great book.

Related to the Book's year 2015 -challenge in Finnish forum, I have to remark that the book won a Somerset Maugham Award 1989.

I found this book in the book exchange shelf of the library. I enjoyed Hollinghurst's "The Stranger's Child" a few years ago and this book has been on my TBR list ever since. So I will be reading this at some point. :)
