Yes, food for much thought, the guys, the gays, the working classes, the sunken London, and male beauty glimmering like stars falling into strange black skies of emptiness.
They are very much more than good friends, in fact, and not always as discrete as they might be. Guy is vivacious and more than a little foolish, an extroverted drama queen and aesthete, more Bosie than he is Wilde, despite his pretentions. Max is less well off, less overt, and really very sweet.
They fall into trouble through a combination of events, including the theft of some important documents, a clever and desperate young housemaid, a shortfall of funds for gambling debts, a little domestic pilfering, and a chance meeting with Dr John Watson at the races.
Holmes of course is involved in an investigation and all the elements become rather tumbled as the Great Detective doesn't quite get hold of the right end of it.
Holmes and Watson are supporting characters in a story of misunderstandings, cross-purposes, disguises and secrets. It feels very much Wilde meets Wodehouse, with it's foppish upper class young men who are mentally negligible.
The book is hugely fun and reads at a smart pace. I'll definitely be looking for more of Piercy's work.
