I’m delighted to see that Alan Hollinghurst has been awarded the Booker Prize for his new book The Line of Beauty. Hollinghurst is one of my favorite authors, his Swimming Pool Library being one of the most exquisitely written novels I’ve ever read. I hadn’t known he had a new novel out, and I’m excited to read it.
[NB: If you buy Hollinghurst novels from Amazon, Amazon will infer that you like “gay” novels. Not that there is… you know.]
