THE SPARSHOLT AF­FAIR

Reader's Digest (Canada) - - Culture -

Alan Hollinghurst

“Money, power…gay shenani­gans! It had ev­ery­thing,” one char­ac­ter re­marks of the 1966 af­fair that dis­graced war-hero-slash-in­dus­tri­al­ist David Sparsholt. This lu­mi­nous novel, Hollinghurst’s sixth, has a bit of ev­ery­thing, too, cross­ing decades and per­spec­tives to show how se­crets and so­cial up­heaval trans­form a sin­gle fam­ily. March 13.
