FIRST AMERICAN EDITION The Swimming Pool Library by Alan Hollinghurst, 1988
If you love vintage LGBTQ lit, don't miss out on The Swimming Pool Library!
Synopsis from Goodreads: A literary sensation and bestseller both in England and America, The Swimming Pool Library is an enthralling, darkly erotic novel of homosexuality before the scourge of AIDS; an elegy, possessed of chilling clarity, for ways of life that can no longer be lived with impunity.
"Impeccably composed and meticulously particular in its observation of everything" (Harpers & Queen), it focuses on the friendship of two men: William Beckwith, a young gay aristocrat who leads a life of privilege and promiscuity, and the elderly Lord Nantwich, an old Africa hand, searching for someone to write his biography and inherit his traditions.
