內容簡介

結合英國上流社會的虛榮和勢利與貴族學校的同志情慾。
2004年英國布客獎作品,BBC改編為同名影集。

「第一本榮獲布克獎的男同志小說。除了細膩呈現倫敦的同志文化,也描繪了八O年代倫敦對階級、社會、政治、家庭及性愛的世俗觀念。」
--Publishers Weekly

「英國首相柴契爾的陰影貫穿了整部小說。」
--《紐約時報書評》

「巧妙呈現經濟蓬勃發展,保守黨大獲全勝,柴契爾當政,英國普遍充滿信心和希望的八○年代。」
--Booklist

從主角Nick Guest進入牛津大學寄住上流家庭開始,他的姓氏「Guest」就透露出他只能是寄人籬下的旁觀者,從1983年到1987年,他在這個充滿可能性的時代裡,周旋於豪華盛宴、權力財富,與擔任公職的黑人相戀,旋與俊美的百萬富翁墜入情網……作者以小觀大,觸角敏銳,對人際、階級的觀察永遠如此精闢;一個時代躍然紙上,哀傷,有如快照,幾近完美,洋溢古典氣息的一部小說。

It is the summer of 1983, and young Nick Guest, an innocent in the matters of politics and money, has moved into an attic room in the Notting Hill home of the Feddens: Gerald, an ambitious new Tory MP, his wealthy wife Rachel, and their children Toby and Catherine. Nick had idolized Toby at Oxford, but in his London life it will be the troubled Catherine who becomes his friend and his uneasy responsibility. At the boom years of the mid-80s unfold, Nick becomes caught up in the Feddens' world. In an era of endless possibility, Nick finds himself able to pursue his own private obsession, with beauty - a prize as compelling to him as power and riches are to his friends.
