Alan Hollinghurst
The Sparsholt Affair

A rare treat to hear from the Man Booker Prize-winning writer Alan Hollinghurst. The Sparsholt Affair is his sixth novel which opens in the early days of the Second World War as Britain’s cities are being bombed, and it unfolds into a panoramic survey of class, sexuality and desire in the second half of the century.
