Throughout this richly comic history of sexual mores and literary reputation we follow the two families, in a series of widely spaced episodes, through startling changes in fortune and circumstance.

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.
