The Line of Beauty (2004)
By Alan Hollinghurst


Nick Guest, a young outsider, moves in with the family of a wealthy friend and becomes involved in the sophisticated gay culture of 1980s London. He struggles to gain acceptance with the social elite, and is conflicted about the importance of money, sex, and class. Writing in elegant, seductive, and dreamlike prose, Hollinghurst sets the novel in an atmosphere of dark opulence and passion.

Fun Fact: The Line of Beauty was made into a BBC television drama series and a feature film in 2006.

Next: The Sea (2005)
By John Banville
