9780140128239: Which of Us Two?: Story of a Love Affair

John Tasker and Colin Spencer met in 1957. The two young men, both in their early twenties, both uncertainly poised at the beginning of a career in the world of the arts, had much in common. Yet threatening tensions started to show themselves almost immediately. John was desperate to avoid National Service. Colin, though unwilling to admit or even fully realise it, was fast putting down roots within London's cultural life, where his stories were being published, his drawings sold, and where he was laying the foundations of many friendships. So began a conflict which was to pull them back and forth over the next two years, until John finally boarded ship for Australia and what turned out to be a permanent separation. "Which Of Us Two?" is a collection of the letters the lovers wrote to each other - Colin's were returned to him after John's death - linked by the author's memories of the time, and his attempts, often painfully honest, to make sense with the benefit of hindsight of what was going on between them, and why he let go of such a rare, once-in-a-lifetime relationship.

Book Description Penguin, Great Britain, 1991. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Penguin. Joe Tasker and Colin Spencer, both uncertainly poised on the brink of their careers, met in a Brighton pub in 1957. At a time when homosexuals continued to be ostrazied, their turbulent, illicit love affair was bedeviiled by personal conflicts too, and for twenty-six months they poured out an intensity of ardour and accusation in their prolific letters. This book draws a fascinating picture of Europpe's artistic fringe in the late fifties, but - by turns raw and overflown, poignant and frenzied, searingly frank and brutally funny - it is above all a testament to the enduring power of a first great passion. 258 pp. Couple of slight creases to cover. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 034993
