London Triptych  11.95EUR 

Description

Three men, three lives and three eras sinuously entwine in a dark and startling narrative of sex, exploitation and dependence set against London's strangely constant gay underworld.

Jack Rose begins his apprenticeship as a rent boy with Alfred Taylor in the 1890s, and finds that a life of pleasure and excess leads him to new friendships - most notbaly with the soon-to-be infamous Oscar Wilde.
A century later, David tells his own tale of unashamed decadence while waiting to be released from prison, addressing his story to the lover who betrayed him. Where their paths cross, in the politically sensitive 1950s, the artist Colin Read, tentatively explores his sexuality as he draws in preparation for his most ambitious painting yet - 'London Triptych'.

Rent boys, aristocrats, artists and criminals populate this bold début as Jonathan Kemp skilfully interweaves the lives and loves of three very different men across the decades.

'As the connections and reflections across the years reveal themselves, this is a book that will make you think - and make you feel.' - Neil Bartlett
