A very old book, but at times it's how some of us lived that kind of life
years later. Until we could not take it any more.

Superb novel - I wonder why it isn't more widely appreciated. Evelyn Waugh is known to have rated this work highly - its themes mirror many of Waugh's own. Brilliantly evocative of a bygone era.

I thought that this was a thinly veiled book about Lord Tom Driberg. However, it was written before a lot of Driberg’s story became widely known so it’s also based on other politicians. By the time he was writing this, the author came to believe that homosexuality was ‘based on wrong choices.’

The real life labour politician discovered anglo-catholicism and cottaging during the same weekend. He was well-know to the police but the establishment covered everything up so that he never got prosecuted.
