Thank you @Robothugs this book was fantastic! Set in an arts college, there‘s everything here. Love, affection, scorn, jealousy, fury & death. The seven 4th yr theatre students are family, living & loving one another. Until the “leading man” of the group has his confidence shaken & things spiral toward a tragic conclusion. Loved it & totally recommend it. #HSreadathon #Booked2019 #BookGiftedToMe #MountTBR2019 #Bk22 #Pop19 #SetOnACollegeCampus

Loved this one! It‘s not for everyone - the plot is almost non existent, but the characters and the lovely prose more than makes up for it.
This story is in 5 parts, a tale of gay life in the UK from 1940‘s to today, each part almost like a novella. The first half is definitely more successful than the latter half, but it‘s still 4.5⭐️for the gorgeous writing, and making me immediately pick up 2 more from this author!

Cinfhen I‘ve reached 100 pages and I don‘t think I‘m really liking it!! I can‘t decide if I should continue on..... 6mo
KarenUK @cinfhen .... 🤔..... Hmmmm..... I preferred the first half to the last, so maybe a bail for you? But then again each section is like a novella, so maybe you‘ll like the next part better! 🤷‍♀️😊 6mo
