9780140020793: The Old Men at the Zoo

Simon Carter, secretary of London Zoo in 1970, has accepted responsibility and power to the prejudice of his gifts as a naturalist. But power is more than just the complicated game played by the old men at the zoo in the satirical first half of this novel - it lies very near to violence.

Chair of many literary panels, including the Booker prize, and campaigner for homosexual equality he was knighted in 1980. He died in 1991.
