His Two Boys,
This review is from: Envy (New York Review Books Classics) (Paperback)
An older man literally picks up a young man from the street and lets him stay at his place. The older man is a model apparatchik and the story revolves around the younger man's envy of both the older man's success and another young rival picked up in some other fashion. Your mind runs to why this man likes to pick up young men but this is not a gay story. But then who would be mad to publish one in Stalin's Russia. Maybe I'm reading too much into this.
