Product description

Review

'Vivid and visceral, London Triptych cuts deep to reveal the hidden layers of a secret history.' --JAKE ARNOTT

'Charting three very different affairs taking place against the backdrop of three very different Londons, Jonathan Kemp's first novel is a thought-provoking enquiry into what changes in gay mens' lives as the decades pass - and what doesn't. As the connections and reflections across the years reveal themselves, this is a book that will make you think - and make you feel.' --NEIL BARTLETT

'Despite reaching across a century, Kemp's characters are believable and down to earth; the focus is not on period setting but on dialogue. A thoroughly absorbing and pacy read... a fresh angle on gay life and on the oldest profession.' --TIME OUT

'Kemp's language is beautiful; his characters are carefully drawn and the dialogue engaging. The narratives overlap and are all the more moving for their subtlety. Drawing inspiration from the life and work of Oscar Wilde, just as Michael Cunningham's The Hours drew from Virginia Woolf, London Triptych is a touching and engrossing read.' --ATTITUDE

'By turns explicit and energetic, Kemp's forceful prose uncompromisingly draws the reader in. A strange, squalid, rather interesting book.' --METRO

'Astonishingly textured prose and wonderfully defined narrative voices...I recognised the characters immediately and wanted to follow them.'
--JOANNE HARRIS
