The Swimming-Pool Library Alan Hollinghurst
Alan Hollinghurst’s first novel is an intriguingly erotic book that centres on the friendship of William Beckwith, a promiscuous young gay aristocrat, and the elderly Lord Nantwich, who is searching for someone to write his memoirs. Hollinghurst writes about the British class system and homosexuality with seductive brilliance. His novel The Line of Beauty won the Booker Prize in 2004.
