Review:

He is as subtle as the devil (John Betjeman)

One of those too-rare books whose enjoyability makes it seem too short. (Elizabeth Bowen)

It is a kind of collage of sharply drawn bits of real life, excellently described and artistically arranged (Stephen Spender)

One of the notable writers to have surfaced after the war (Anthony Powell)

Reminiscence and reflection and description are woven together to make a curious and fascinating tapestry (Lord David Cecil)

A delight to read (Vogue)

Mr. Brooke's finely shaped prose, his wit, percipience, and liveliness in the description of people, places, and states of mind are a rare delight. (Scotsman)

A work of some stature: informal, charmingly written, quite new in flavour. (Tribune)

A sad, funny, densely detailed yet continuously readable experience (Anthony Thwaite Observer)

You have a sense of a man burrowing into the roots of memory itself, the roots of the human race (P. J. Kavanagh Spectator)

Book Description:

A haunting classic of gay literature
