The Stranger’s Child

By Alan Hollinghurst

British Society – upper class—bored generation. Wasted lifestyle. Too much drinking
Hints of homosexulality or bisexuality.
Poetry written by young man, published. Poetry more important that the man –Regarded of symbolism of the loss of humanity due to WWI Part of the book deals with a scholar writing about that man.

Pg 377 –“The thing is, they all get it wrong.” … “They take against people” said Daphne, “or someone they talk to bears a grudge and tell things that aren’t right. And they put it all in as if it was gospel.”

Book Jacket references the book as “truly Jamesian fineness of perception.” I should have been warned off.
