Faber & Faber 2004 0571206069 / 9780571206063 Paperback Very Good 
Gilbert Adair's extraordinary new novel constitutes both the exuberant cele bration of, and the melancholy elegy for, that poignantly brief period in t he early 1980s when homosexuals marched collectively, arm in arm, out of th e closet. Not all homosexuals, however. Adair's protagonist, Gideon, a lone ly, horny young Englishman who arrives in Paris at the very beginning of th e decade to take up a teaching post in the local Berlitz, is increasingly f ascinated by the intoxicating atmosphere of erotic banter and bragging in t he school's all-male and virtually all-gay common room. The moment has sure ly arrived for him, too, to overcome his own chronic timidity and actually do what he has only ever dared fantasise about. Yet Gideon has a secret - a secret he is prepared to share with nobody but the reader, a secret he is finally obliged to confront, with surprising results, when the shadow of AI DS starts to cast its sinister net over the gay community. Wise and witty, Buenas Noches, Buenos Aires contrives to be many things at once: a flamboya nt chronicle of a period of sexual emancipation now long gone, an incisive dissection of the circuitous route taken by one young man from self-doubt t o self-discovery, a tour de force of astonishing sexual candour and, not le ast, a dazzling stylistic exercise.
