    In the late summer of 1913, George Sawle brings his Cambridge schoolmate--a handsome, aristocratic young poet named Cecil Valance--to his family's modest home outside London for the weekend. George is enthralled by Cecil, and soon his sixteen-year-old sister, Daphne, is equally besotted by him and the stories he tells about Corley Court, the country estate he is heir to.

Reviews of The Stranger's Child

Overall customer rating: 5.000
JOHN C

Great Read

by JOHN C on Jul 25, 2013

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.
