The Strangers Child see's Alan Hollinghurst at the height of his literary genius. Set over nearly a century, the book opens with the arrival of a minor poet whom over the years has a effect on friends, family and Biographers down the years.
The novel is essentially about memory, love and loss.
Alan Hollinghurst is on top form here, and I highly recommend this 'Booker Prize' winning author of 'The Line Of Beauty' to everyone.
