Synopsis:

Moving into the attic room in the Notting Hill home of the wealthy, politically connected Fedden family in 1983, twenty-year-old Nick Guest becomes caught up in the rising fortunes of this glamorous family and finds his own life forever altered by his association during the boom years of the 1980s. By the author of The Swimming-Pool Library.


Review:

"Though he's best known for his elegant descriptions of gay male life and pitch-perfect prose, Hollinghurst is most striking here for his successful, often damning, observations about the vast divides between the ruling class and everyone else....A beautifully realized portrait of a decade and a social class...."

Kirkus, 08/15/2004

Review:

"Among its other wonders, this almost perfectly written novel...delineates what's arguably the most coruscating portrait of a plutocracy since Goya painted the Spanish Bourbons....While Hollinghurst's story has the true feel of Jamesian drama, it is the authorial intelligence illuminating otherwise trivial pieces of story business so as to make them seem alive and mysteriously significant that gives the most pleasure....This novel has the air of a classic."

Publishers Weekly, 09/20/2004
