3 Hollinghurst, Alan THE STRANGER'S CHILD

This is Alan Hollinghurst's first novel since "The Line of Beauty", winner of the 2004 Man Booker Prize. In the late summer of 1913 the aristocratic y oung poet Cecil Valance comes to stay at 'Two Acres', the home of his close Cambridge friend George Sawle. The weekend will be one of excitements and confusions for all the Sawles, but it is on George's sixteen-year-old siste r Daphne that it will have the most lasting impact, when Cecil writes her a poem which will become a touchstone for a generation, an evocation of an E ngland about to change for ever. Linking the Sawle and Valance families irr evocably, the shared intimacies of this weekend become legendary events in a larger story, told and interpreted in different ways over the coming cent ury, and subjected to the scrutiny of critics and biographers with their ow n agendas and anxieties. In a sequence of widely separated episodes we foll ow the two families through startling changes in fortune and circumstance. At the centre of this often richly comic history of sexual mores and litera ry reputation runs the story of Daphne, from innocent girlhood to wary old age. Around her Hollinghurst draws an absorbing picture of an England const antly in flux. As in "The Line of Beauty", his impeccably nuanced explorati on of changing taste, class and social etiquette is conveyed in deliciously witty and observant prose. Exposing our secret longings to the shocks and surprises of time, "The Stranger's Child" is an enthralling novel from one of the finest writers in the English language.
